Partnership with DNREC – Mosquito Control

Date Posted: Friday, March 26th, 2021

The Town of Milton partners with Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control (DNREC), Mosquito Control section for the spraying of mosquitoes.  To follow is the message received from DNREC-MOSQUITO CONTROL:



Weather permitting, the Delaware Mosquito Control Section plans the application of Vectobac12AS (liquid Bti) with a helicopter (registration number N2268W and/or N862M) to control mosquito larvae in the spray zone(s) that you have subscribed to within the Delaware Notification Service. Applications may occur during the daylight hours Saturday March 27, Sunday March 28, and Monday March 29, 2021.

All insecticides to be used are registered with the USEPA for mosquito control and will be applied according to USEPA approved label instructions.  The USEPA has determined that the insecticides to be used do not pose unreasonable risks to human health, wildlife, or the environment.

For further information, please visit the Mosquito Control Spray Information site or view the Spray Zone Map.


Spraying occurs periodically.  This post will be updated as DNREC notices are received.
