The city of Brookfield will conduct its second mosquito spraying of the summer on Thursday, due to elevated larvae counts in wetlands around the city.
The spraying, done by helicopter, will cover 550 acres.
Areas sprayed will include:
wetlands adjacent to the Fox River between North Avenue and Capitol Drive, including Mitchell Park
wetlands north and west of Wirth Park
portions of the wetlands to the south and east of Rolling Meadows Park between Brookfield Road and Calhoun Road
the Butler Ditch corridor, east and west of Lilly Road near Lilly Heights Park
The treatment will consist of a granular biolarvicide. There are no restrictions for the public use of treated areas, but park users should avoid using the areas of the park while treatment is under way.
For information, call the city's Mosquito Program Information Line at (262) 796-6711.
