Mosquito Spraying

What is Mosquito Spraying?

During summer months, mosquito spraying is generally done once a month, dependent upon the mosquito population.

Spraying is usually done over a 4-day period beginning in the Northeast, Southeast, Northwest, and lastly the Southwest. If any of these scheduled days are rainy, or if we have high winds, the fogging will be rescheduled for the following week, Monday through Thursday.

When spraying is scheduled, the City issues a Press Release to inform residents at least 3 to 5 days in advance through the Canton Repository, the Akron Beacon Journal, WHBC, and in the News and Calendar sections of this website. 

Health and Bee Keeping Issues

People with respiratory problems and beekeepers should take any necessary precautions to protect themselves or their hives when mosquito spraying takes place.

Additional Information

Residents may contact the Department of Administration to find out if spraying is scheduled or to register any complaints of high mosquito population.
