(Lander, Wyo) – City of Lander Weed & Pest Department has had a significant reduction of mosquitoes caught in the traps this past week. Due to the reduction in mosquitoes the Department will discontinue spraying. The Department will continue to trap each week and monitor the mosquitoes for the West Nile Virus. The traps are still showing the mosquito that carries the West Nile Virus.
If the number of mosquitoes trapped increases the Department start up spraying again in September.
The Department would really like to encourage people to continue to be vigilant in avoiding contact with mosquitos. Remember the “Five D’s” (Dusk, Dawn, Deet, Dress, and Drain).
