[ARCHIVED] Mosquito Spraying July 15 and 16

Weather permitting, the City of Galion will conduct mosquito spraying on July 15 and 16. The northern half of the city will be sprayed on Monday and the southern half on Tuesday. Harding Way is the dividing line. 

Spraying will begin after 10:00 p.m. on each night. Residents should close their windows and keep children and pets indoors during spraying.

The Galion City Health Department is providing free mosquito dunks to the public to be placed into areas of stagnant water in order to prevent mosquito breeding. The dunks are available at the Health Department, located at 113 Harding Way East, on Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

In order to help eliminate mosquitoes in your yard, you can:

  • Empty, remove, cover, or turn over receptacles with the potential to hold water. 
  • Clean bird baths twice weekly. 
  • Discard old tires or store them indoors. 
  • Repair leaky plumbing and outside faucets. 
  • Make sure gutters and downspouts are free of blockage and are properly draining. 
  • Empty your pets’ water dishes daily.
