Sugar Hill mosquito sprayings coming up

SUGAR HILL -- The first round of Sugar Hill's annual mosquito control sprays is just around the corner.

Each year, the city of Sugar Hill sprays environmentally safe, EPA-registered insecticides to control and reduce the mosquito population within the city. An attempt to prevent discomfort and mosquito-borne illnesses, the sprayings begin just after midnight for several days.

"The mosquito spray will accomplish its work overnight, and the next morning, when the sun comes up, the chemicals are rendered harmless but the process of killing the mosquitoes has taken place," the city said in a news release.

The first round of this year's efforts begins on June 10.

Between June 10 through 14, streets and subdivisions north of Ga. Highway 20 will be sprayed. Between June 17 and 21, streets and subdivisions south of Ga. Highway 20 will be sprayed.

Second and third rounds of insecticide will be applied in mid-July and mid-August.
