Keeping high standards for employee and citizen safety
MOSQUITO SPRAYING FOR 2020 BEGINS THE WEEK OF JUNE 7, 2020
The City of Clive's annual mosquito control program begins each spring and uses an ultra-low volume ground sprayer. Sprays begin at sunset when the weather permits and wind speed is no greater than 10 mph.
Ground spraying will be performed when conditions are favorable for mosquitos. Staff will spray NW 75th Street to NW 114th Street on Tuesday nights, NW 118th Street to NW 142nd Street on Wednesday nights, and NW 142nd Street to Western City Limits on Thursday nights.

“NO MOSQUITO SPRAYING” OPTION DISCONTINUED
At the July 14, 2016, City Council meeting, a discussion was held on the issue of mosquito spraying. Due to concerns about the West Nile virus, the City received requests for mosquito spraying from residents who were not receiving mosquito spraying in front of their property due to “no mosquito spraying” requests from their neighbors. The Council was provided with information on the City’s operations, the product used by the City of Clive and the amount of active ingredient that is applied per acre (less than .007 lbs. per acre). Based on that discussion, the City Council directed staff to discontinue its “No Mosquito Spraying” option.
