Mosquito spraying starts this weekend in select Palm Springs neighborhoods

Officials at the Coachella Valley Mosquito & Vector Control District would like you to know they’re about to start spraying in the city.

 What: Starting Saturday (July 23), trucks mounted with ultra low volume insecticides will be traveling the streets of Palm Springs between 1 a.m. and 7 a.m. spraying to combat the spread of Aedes aegypti (AKA the yellow fever mosquito).

  • The mosquito can be recognized by black and white markings on its legs.

  • Weather permitting, the spraying will take place most Saturdays through Sept. 24.

Where: Neighborhoods to be sprayed include Warm Sands, Tahquitz River Estates, Deepwell, and parts of the Historic Tennis Club. 

Why: “Aedes mosquitoes have a painful bite that is diminishing the quality of life of residents due to incessant daytime biting,” the District writes. “When mosquitoes are eliminated before becoming adults, they cannot pose a nuisance or disease problem.”
