Aerial Mosquito Larvaciding to start


August 27, 2020

The Cheyenne-Laramie County Health Department in conjunction with the Cheyenne Weed and Pest Department will begin the first round of aerial larvacide work on the week of August 24, 2020. Fixed wing aircraft will fly the major drainage areas of Laramie County including municipal sewage lagoons, ponds, stock reservoirs and lakes in an effort to control the mosquito vector that carries West Nile Virus.

The larvacide is a biological agent that targets only mosquito larvae in their aquatic life cycle. The larvacide is harmless to animals and livestock. Flights are generally flown in the early morning hours on calm days. For more information, contact the Cheyenne-Laramie County Health Department at 307-633-4090.
