Application to be Confined to Residential Areas in the Vicinity of Quakertown Park

DENTON, TX, Sept. 18, 2020 – In accordance with the City of Denton Mosquito Surveillance and Response Plan, the City will conduct a ground spray application of Merus 3.0, an organic, ultra-low volume (ULV) ground spray for killing adult mosquitoes, in a confined residential area of Denton in the late evening hours of Monday, Sept. 21, weather permitting.

The application area for this ground spray event is generally bordered in the residential areas north of McKinney Street, south of College Street, from Bolivar Street to Ruddell Street. Click here to see a map of the designated spray area. The map can also be found at www.cityofdenton.com/fightthebite. To minimize exposure, the ground spraying will take place between the evening/overnight hours of 9 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 21, and 5 a.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 22. While not harmful to humans or pets, the late evening application allows residents to more easily avoid contact with these pesticides when they are applied while also targeting the time that mosquitoes are active.
