City Will Spray For Mosquitos

Posted on 14 August 2013 by KWBG

BOONE, Iowa—Even though the City of Boone has been able to keep up with insects, especially mosquitoes this summer, the Public Works Department will continue to spray to prevent problems.  The weather has been dry and that’s helped.  But, with rain Sunday night and more in the forecast, and a warm up expected into next week, Boone Public Works will spray Wednesday evening.  In the past, Public Works Director John Rouse said the spraying affects only flying mosquitoes.  Other treatment is done to deal with standing water.  He says even the spray should not affect residents, many want to know when spraying will occur.  It is possible that additional spraying will take place, depending on weather conditions, through Pufferbilly Days in early September.
