Mosquito Fogging FAQs

What is Fogging?
Mosquito fogging is used to control and reduce mosquitoes that can spread viruses.

What is in the Fog?
Mosquito control vehicles spray very small amounts of insecticide into the air to kill mosquitoes. The spray is a fine mist that acts as a fog.

What Does Fogging Do?
The insecticide immediately kills flying mosquitoes and larvae. This measure will temporarily reduce mosquito populations in an area, but will not prevent mosquitoes from returning in the future.

When Does Fogging Occur?
Fogging generally takes place in the early evening hours when mosquitoes are more active.

Is the Fog Harmful?
When spraying is done correctly, the mosquito fog will not harm people, pets, animals, or the environment.

What Should I Do During or After Fogging?
Fogging is safe. The insecticide used is regulated by the EPA. You do not need to leave an area where spraying takes place. If you prefer, you can stay inside and close windows and doors - but it is not necessary. Spraying does not harm pets, but you may choose to bring them inside when spraying occurs.
