Roadside mosquito fogging took place within the Cedaredge city limits Sept. 3. The precaution, though extra necessary this year with West Nile Virus cases found in the county, is actually customary for the town, according to Deputy Clerk Chris Anderson from the Cedaredge Town Hall. Anderson guessed that this was the third time this summer that mosquito fogging took place.
The fogging takes place only within and closely around city limits, spanning from the edge of the golf course on the south side of town to NW Sage Avenue on the north side. It also reaches the base of Cedar Mesa.
The mosquito spray’s prime ingredients are permethrin and piperonyl butoxide. The spray is minimally toxic to people and animals.
