The City of Newport has operated its own extensive mosquito control program since the summer of 2002. During the summer of 2003, an airplane equipped for spraying was added to a fleet of 8 trucks to fight the mosquito battle. The use of the most up-to-date equipment and techniques has made our program very successful, and the envy of many Delta cities.
The trucks spray the entire city 6 nights a week and the city is sprayed by plane as needed. Special spraying for outdoor activities is available upon request.
Maintenance and upkeep of the vehicles, airplane and equipment is done by the mosquito control department.
