Mosquito Control Spraying in Neighborhoods

Mosquito spraying will run, as needed, from May 29 thru September 17, 2019 in Bowie. If you suspect a mosquito problem in your area, please call the Public Works Department at 301-809-2336. 


Adulticiding – Communities will be visited based on the Adult Mosquito Surveillance / Spraying Schedule if mosquito complaints have been reported in the area .  A surveillance crew member will either place a portable light trap overnight or do a landing count in complaint areas. If the number of female mosquitoes does not exceed the action threshold (3 female mosquitos in a 2 minute count, 10 female mosquitos per night in an unbaited light trap or 24 female mosquitos per night in a baited light trap), spraying will not be done.  


When spraying is needed, it is done weekly according to the Mosquito Spraying Schedule.Learn more about the program at www.cityofbowie.org/mosquitoes.


To help control the infestation please remember to replace bird bath water, empty children's toy's after it has rained, empty dog bowls, etc.
