The Delaware Mosquito Control Section now accepts applications for a No-Spray Zone requesting that mosquito control adulticides not be applied in the immediate vicinity of your residence. (Note: Applications are only accepted for properties located outside of incorporated municipalities. Requests for no-spray zone consideration for properties within incorporated municipalities should be directed to the respective municipality.)
Please complete and return the application form to the address indicated on the form. You will be notified of our decision within several weeks of our receipt of a complete application.
Reference materials helpful to you as you consider your request can be obtained by clicking on the links at the bottom of this page. Trumpet EC (naled) is currently used in aerial adulticide applications. Anvil 10+10 (sumithrin, a synthetic pyrethroid) is currently used in ground (fog truck) applications.
Please be advised that a separate No-Spray Zone Request must be submitted each calendar year. To avoid early season spraying, requests should be submitted by March 1.
