Mosquito Control Program

The Town of Johnstown is in its 16th year of cost effective biorational Integrated Mosquito Management (IMM) by Vector Disease Control International (VDCI). The primary objective of this IMM Program is to monitor and reduce mosquito populations through the use of specific, environmentally sound, control techniques in order to protect its residents from the threat of mosquito-borne diseases.

Open communication is maintained by VDCI between the Town of Johnstown, County Departments of Health & Environment, the Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment and surrounding municipalities in order to ensure that the highest level of mosquito control and epizootic response is achieved. This diligent and cooperative communication is important to the Town of Johnstown’s mosquito management program and provides significant benefit to public health throughout the entire area.

VDCI conducts mosquito spraying (fogging) throughout the Town of Johnstown as trap results dictate and when weather conditions are conducive to the best effectiveness. Specific information (dates, times, and locations) regarding fogging operations will be posted below as soon as it becomes available. In addition, the most recent annual mosquito control reports, safety tips, and other precautionary information can be found below. Questions about the program can be directed to Broox Boze at the contact information provided below.

Fight the Bite
This is a list of recommendations from Fight the Bite Colorado. For more prevention tips, disease symptoms, and answers to questions, visit the Fight the Bite website.

DRAIN standing water around your house weekly since that is where mosquitoes lay eggs, including tires, cans, flower pots, clogged rain gutters, rain barrels, toys and puddles.
DUSK AND DAWN are when mosquitoes that carry the virus are most active, so limit outdoor activities or take precautions to prevent mosquito bites.
DEET is an effective ingredient to look for in insect repellents. Always follow label instructions carefully.
DRESS in long sleeves and pants during dawn and dusk or in areas where mosquitoes are active.
