The City of Burleson will conduct ground-based spraying for mosquitoes between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m. on Friday, July 23, and then again on Saturday, July 24. The ground spraying will be performed in targeted subdivisions within the designated spray zones.
In the event of rain or if wind speeds are above 10 miles per hour, the spraying may be rescheduled. This method of spraying targets flying mosquitoes that come in contact with the pesticide in the spray or fog. These times have been chosen because they are the times that most mosquitoes are active (flying).
