This morning, a resident told us that the area near the Greenbelt Metro is being sprayed to control mosquitoes. I thought I should post this, in case you are interested.
During the spring & summer, the City of College Park cooperates with the Maryland Department of Agriculture to identify and control mosquito populations. Larviciding treatments are made by Maryland Department of Agriculture personnel beginning in the spring and continuing throughout the summer.
You can contact Public Works (or me) to make a request for local spraying. The Public Works then forward your request to the Maryland Department of Agriculture who will determine if spraying is warranted. If count thresholds are met, the Department of Agriculture may spray for mosquitoes. Wednesday night is the designated time when spraying for adult mosquitoes occurs in the city.
Residents can request exclusion from the adult spray program by completing this exemption form and returning to public works.
