PSA Regarding West Nile & Mosquito Bite Prevention


Officials with San Juan County announced yesterday that mosquitoes in the area have tested positive for West Nile Virus.

***There are NO known cases of West Nile virus in humans or animals at this time.

The City of Farmington uses integrated pest management practices throughout the summer months to help mitigate mosquitoes. This includes switching out between two sprayed products, malathion and permethrin; applying drops of the naturally occurring bacteria bacillus thuringiensis to standing water, and practices that reduce the risks of standing water in our parks and facilities. None of the products we use are listed as a risk to hummingbirds or bats. We do maintain a list of addresses that have requested they NOT be sprayed. To be added to the do not spray list, please call the COF’s Parks, Recreation & Cultural Affairs Department at (505) 599-1197.

What can residents do to mosquito-proof their homes and help prevent mosquito bites? Follow tips provided by the CDC at
