Truck-mounted spraying for mosquitoes is slated for the 38002 zip code this Tuesday (8.1.17) between 8:30pm – 11:30 pm according to a press release from the Shelby County Health Department (SCHD).
Individuals with chronic health problems such as asthma or other lung conditions may want to remain indoors during the time of spraying. Citizens who do not want their residences to be sprayed should contact the Vector Control Program at (901) 222-9715.
To ensure the insecticide is most effective, the scheduled spraying will be canceled if any of the following weather conditions are present for the majority of the schedule spray time:
*Greater than a 65% chance of rain
* Wind speeds 11mph or greater
* Temperature less than 60 degrees Fahrenheit
