“We will also be setting and checking traps by quadrants during the summer months in order to make assessments for numbers of mosquitoes,” the city said in a statement. “If at any time the numbers are low and indicate no need for spraying, we will make adjustments accordingly. We expect the process to spray the entire city will take 6 to 8 hours with three trucks and three people.”
