City of Many tries to thwart Zika virus

In an effort to protect you and your family from the West Nile Virus, mosquitos that bite at night, and the Zika virus, the city of Many has sent employees to mosquito control classes. We were informed that the most effective way to protect you from mosquitos and the viruses they carry is to place pellets in creeks, streams and ditches or anywhere there is standing water. We will continue to spray at the ballparks, football fields, and throughout the neighborhoods. In addition to this, the water department will initiate a new effort to place larvacide pellets in standing water on public property and around your homes as meters are being read.
