The purpose of the program is to reduce the risk of diseases spread by mosquitoes to humans, such as West Nile Virus.


Columbus Public Health (CPH) tracks mosquitoes to monitor the size of mosquito populations and to check for the presence of disease. Below are links to tracking results for this season.  View Mosquito Tracking Results


CPH sprays to kill adult mosquitoes in areas with high mosquito counts and disease presence in area parks, bike paths and neighborhoods between 4 a.m. and sunrise, using low toxicity chemicals. Spraying usually begins the first week of July, however it may be earlier depending on mosquito activity.  View Areas to be Sprayed
