THURSDAYEVENINGS: ALTERNATE DATE IS FRIDAY
Dueto the rise of mosquitos, the City Council has determined that we proceed withcontracting with Altoona for Aerial Spraying for Mosquito’s within the city limitsof Runnells. Spraying will take place on Thursday evenings with an alternatedate to spray of Friday evening if the wind is too high or weatherunpredictable. We will post a notice on the city website at www.RunnellsIa.comalong with a posting at the Post Office and in front of City Hall.
Allindividuals can contribute to mosquito control by eliminating breedinghabitats, reduce standing water, and control the early stages of the mosquitoby applying pesticides around your property.
Peoplewho are concerned about exposure to a pesticide, such as those with chemicalsensitivity or breathing conditions such as asthma, can reduce their potentialfor exposure by staying indoors during the application period and at least anhour after the spraying is concluded. You may remain indoors with children andpets and cover any ornamental fish ponds, beehives or organic gardens.
