The Mississippi State Department of Health has provided the City of Natchez with one time funding to enhance our current mosquito control activities. From April until the end of October Natchez Public Works currently sprays two (2) evenings each week. With the assistance of the MSDH Natchez Public Works will spray one additional evening each week as well as set out traps for mosquito sampling and testing purposes. Mosquitos collected will be taken via courier to the State Epidemiologist for testing. Funds will also be used to purchase a new truck-mounted ULV fogger, to replace the city’s 10+ year old fogger.
To assist Natchez-Adams County residents both learn more about mosquito control methods and protect themselves from mosquito carrying diseases several PDF’s are available for viewing or downloading.
