Chesapeake Mosquito Control is temporarily suspending inspections and treatments of individual properties. The program will respond to all mosquito service requests by performing a general inspection of the problem area and treating immature mosquitoes in standing water in open or common areas. When the spray season begins, workers will spray for adult mosquitoes in the evening. Residents are encouraged to inspect their yards and remove any objects that may hold water or regularly tip and toss to avoid attracting mosquitos.
