MOSQUITO SPRAYING

August 18, 2023

The City of Spanish has been made aware of a case of Eastern Equine Encephalitis within the City and another case in the surrounding area.  While City of Spanish Fort sprays for mosquitos weekly along each roadway and street in the City, to protect against the encephalitis threat, the City has contracted with a third-party vendor to immediately begin spraying additional chemicals designed to supplement the type of chemicals used by the City.  Residents may see vehicles spraying chemicals in their neighborhoods.  Drivers are urged to use caution around slow-moving vehicles.

 

The City also is working in conjunction with the Baldwin County Health Department and the Alabama Department of Public Health to set mosquito traps in various areas of the City for testing purposes.  Anyone who sees a mosquito trap is advised to leave the trap in place, and it will be collected by City or Health Department personnel at an appropriate time.

 

Residents are advised to be cautious and take steps to protect themselves and their pets from mosquitoes.   Here are a few tips to prevent mosquito bites:

  • To protect yourself from mosquito bites at home it is best to prevent mosquitoes from getting into your house.

  • Maintain fly screens on windows, doors, vents and chimneys.

  • Use insect surface sprays both inside and outside the house to kill mosquitoes.

  • Use an effective mosquito repellent, containing either picaridin or diethyltoulamide (DEET) on all exposed skin.

  • Remove stagnant water around the house so mosquitoes cannot breed.

  • Change the water in pet drinking bowls, bird baths and vases at least once a week.

  • Check and maintain rainwater tanks and water storage vessels to ensure screens are intact and limit mosquito entry.
