The city of Richmond will spray for mosquitoes after dark, inside the city limits on Saturday, June 22, Wednesday, June 26, and Saturday, June 29.

“Rain provides for standing water which gives a place for mosquitoes to breed,” city officials explained. “We all need to do our part to keep mosquitoes from breeding, so we ask all residents to remove any standing water around the outside of your home and on your property. Please check your property for stagnant water — pools, bird baths, broken flower pots, clogged gutters, and old tires and toys — anywhere you have stagnant water.”

Richmond residents are encouraged to take a moment to check their property while wearing a repellent, and dressed in long pants and sleeves for extra protection.
