The area to be sprayed is within an area bounded on the north by Forest, on the west by St. Michaels, bounded by Royal on the south, and Vanguard on the east.

Two areas along the 6100 block of Royal Crest and the 3400 block of Grafton had high counts of mosquitos and will be sprayed this evening as well:

While the insecticide is approved by the Environmental Protection Agency, residents should stay inside during the spraying. The city urges residents to report standing water by calling 311 or using the new 311 mobile phone app.
