McPherson – The City of McPherson will be spraying for mosquitoes. The expected break in the weather and with favorable winds forecasted on Wednesday, July 22 the City of McPherson intends to spray this evening. Weather permitting full spraying of the City will occur over the evening of Wednesday, July 22m, and Thursday, July 23. The City will assess the need for additional spray events in the near future. Spraying will be performed in the evening starting between 9-10 pm in public areas and continue throughout the evening.
Residents, especially those with asthma or respiratory sensitivity should remain indoors during spraying. Residents should close windows, doors, vents, and turn off fans and window unit air conditioners (or set to recirculate) to reduce indoor exposure, remove children’s toys and outdoor furniture from outside and/or wash them before using again, wash all produce, and wash skin and hair if exposed to the pesticide.
The City has been and will also be using Mosquito Dunks, larvicide tablets that can be dropped in standing water areas throughout public drainage areas across the City of McPherson. We appreciate the cooperation of citizens as we try to address any issues related to mosquitoes.
