The Town’s mosquito management program is aimed at reducing populations and lowering the risk of disease through reducing habitat, eliminating larvae, trapping and testing mosquitos and – if necessary – adult mosquito spraying. Town contractor the Mosquito Authority uses methods that maximize effectiveness without compromising the safety of residents, pets or the environment.
You can help reduce mosquito populations in the Town of Bennett’s neighborhoods by eliminating breeding habitat on your property. Please drain standing water anywhere it collects on your property, especially common areas such as:
To protect yourself from West Nile virus and other mosquito-borne diseases, use the following tips to avoid mosquito bites:
According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the American Mosquito Control Association, the airborne spraying of pesticides, commonly called mosquito "fogging”, to kill adult mosquitoes is the least effective method to control mosquito populations. Fogging usually consists of spraying or fogging pesticides from the back of a truck or plane.
This method is ineffective because the pesticide only kills those mosquitoes flying in the spray; mosquitoes behind buildings or under vegetation are not affected. Airborne pesticides are particularly harmful as they may be easily ingested by humans and wildlife. Pesticide residue can also be left behind on items kept outdoors, such as children's toys and outdoor furniture, or tracked inside on shoes. Since fogging also kills insects that eat mosquitoes, it can cause future population booms for local mosquitoes.
The Town of Bennett is currently treating our Parks and Open Spaces with a granular larvacide application and putting a larvacide briquette in any standing water. Public Works also vacuums mosquito habitats that can potentially bore large mosquito populations.
The Town of Bennett does not have the legal right to treat private property, regardless of its proximity to Town land. This includes both residential and business properties. The Public Works Department and the Bennett Park and Recreation District is providing residents with briquettes to treat stagnant standing water, which is water that cannot be drained and has been standing for more than five days. You can receive briquettes at Town Hall from 7 a.m. – 5 p.m., 207 Muegge Way, Bennett, CO 80102.
Some local mosquito treatment companies are the Mosquito Authority, Vector Disease Control International and TruGreen Mosquito Defense.
