Mosquito Spraying in West Richardson

Posted in City Stuff by jennyrilling on June 20, 2012

The City of Richardson sent out a notice today to let residents know they will be spraying for mosquitoes in the southwest portion of the city, from Melrose to Spring Valley and Coit to Central Expressway.

I emailed Richardson Health Department Director Bill Alsup to get the details so that cyclists can detour if need be. He replied:

“We spray when the weather permits as the wind must be 10 mph or less and no precipitation. As of right now it looks like we will spray tonight as long as the wind behaves. Spraying begins approximately 10 p.m. and can continue for several hours but never extends past about 3 a.m. at the latest. Please note that our spray equipment has an in cab remote control and when we see people out, we can turn the sprayer off. Appreciate your input.”
