Norwalk says no to mosquito spraying

Norwalk officials have decided to go after mosquito larvae instead of spraying for the pests.

City officials discussed mosquito spraying at Tuesday's council meeting, saying the larvacide -- which kills mosquitoes at an early stage -- will be placed on public property in standing water.

The larvacide to be used is from three years ago, said Josh Snyder, public works director.

The city used to pay between $14,000 and $15,000 for mosquito spraying each year, Diane Eschen, finance director.

However, "it wasn't effective," Mayor Sue Lesch said.
