Franklin County Public Health has been actively trapping mosquitoes for several weeks throughout Franklin County. In order to reduce the number of adult mosquitoes, Franklin County Public Health will be spraying:
Wednesday, May 22: due to a high number of floodwater/nuisance mosquitoes found in the area’s CDC light trap
- Plain Township (North)
- New Albany
Spraying will begin around 8:45 p.m. (weather permitting).
Detailed maps of the areas that will be sprayed can be found on our mosquito website. Residents are encouraged to visit the website often for spray maps and other mosquito information.
It is a good reminder for residents to take precautionary steps to protect themselves and their families.
- Wear insect repellent containing DEET (follow package directions).
- Limit outdoor activity at dusk and dawn when mosquitoes are most active.
- Eliminate all standing water around your home (mosquitoes breed in water and it doesn’t take much time).
To report mosquito problem areas in your community, please go to our mosquito website to complete a service request form or call (614) 525-BITE (2483). Any unanswered calls will be returned within one business day.
Residents of the City of Columbus should call 311.
