During spraying, people are urged to:

  • Close windows
  • Shut off air conditioning
  • Bring pets inside

It is also suggested that you wash any items left outside during  spraying before using them again. This includes patio furniture, fruits  and vegetables, pet bowls and pet toys.

Keep an eye on your local news station, newspaper or city website and  be sure to keep your family and your pets safe during aerial spraying.
