No Spray Request
South Salt Lake Valley Mosquito Abatement District operates under
authority granted in the Utah Code 17B-2a-703. It gives the District
legal right to enter any area within District boundaries to exterminate
mosquitoes or other insects for the purpose of protecting public
We recognize some may not wish to have adult
mosquito control in their area including those with health concerns,
beekeepers, organic farmers, and others with legitimate concerns about
the use of pesticides. The District will honor NO SPRAY Requests within
300 feet of your property as requested, to the extent possible.
Most people having health related concerns can
satisfactorily minimize these concerns by closing doors, windows and
vents in their homes between sunset and midnight during the mosquito
season (May – September) when fogging occurs. Because all pesticides
are EPA registered and are applied safely according to label
instructions the majority will not need to take any special precautions.
Individuals with special medical problems
attributed to insecticide exposure may submit a NO SPRAY Request with a
physician's note acknowledging pesticide sensitivity.
Beekeepers and organic farmers and others with
legitimate concerns about the use of pesticides may also submit a NO
SPRAY Request indicating in detail the subject of their concern.
To request being put on the NO SPRAY List, please submit
a NO SPRAY Request form.
All requests will be reviewed within two business
days and we will contact you once your request has been processed and
with any additional questions. All requests are valid only through the
end of the year in which they were submitted and will need to be
renewed annually to maintain NO SPRAY status.
Please keep in mind that any and all NO SPRAY
Requests are not guaranteed as the District is obligated to protect the
public health foremost and must take all precautions in the event of a
West Nile Virus, Western Equine Encephalitis or other mosquito borne
disease outbreak. In this event we will make every attempt to contact
those with NO SPRAY Requests ahead of time where possible.
The District reserves the right to change this policy at
any time as needed.
