Mahoning County Public Health is preparing to conduct spraying for mosquito control.

They received 2022 Ohio EPA Mosquito Control Grant funding to help reduce the population of adult mosquitos.

Spraying helps protect against mosquito-borne diseases like the West Nile Virus and Zika Virus.

Adult mosquito spraying will happen three times throughout the summer months throughout Mahoning County.

The first spraying will be Friday, June 24, followed by July 29 and August 26.

The locations listed below will be treated on the above dates:

  • Canfield Fairgrounds
  • Mill Creek Park
  • Coy Park
  • Boardman Township Park
  • Austintown Township Park
  • Poland Township Park
  • Poland Village Park
  • Canfield Township Park

Four campgrounds will also be treated on June 24 and July 29.

Campgrounds covered are:

  • Chaparral Campgrounds
  • Western Reserve Campgrounds
  • Lakeside Campground
  • Lake Milton KOA Campground

Spraying will be done between dusk and dawn. If it is rainy or windy, spraying will be postponed.

To help get rid of mosquito breeding sites, change the water in pet bowls and bird baths twice a week. Cleaning clogged gutters and keeping water from accumulating on tarps and boat covers will also help control the population.

If you have any bee hives in these areas, call the Environmental Health Division (330-270-2855) so spraying can be avoided in the area.
