MADISONVILLE, Ky. (9/5/13) – The City of Madisonville will undergo a city-wide mosquito treatment during the evening hours Monday, Sept 9th and continuing into the morning hours Tuesday, Sept 10th, weather permitting.
While the spraying does not pose a risk to residents, those who are sensitive to odors or have chemical sensitivities may want to keep their windows and doors closed during the treatment.
The services provided to the city are based on an integrated pest management approach, including larval control, biological control and the strategic use of U.S. Environmental Protection Agency labeled and registered pesticides for adult control.
Homeowners can also help control mosquitoes by eliminating potential breeding grounds around their home. Empty or remove outdoor receptacles that hold water. Clean gutters, pools, basins, vases, and birdbaths frequently.
Questions or concerns may be directed to city hall at 270-824-2100.
