Weed Management

The City sprays for weeds in public parks and green spaces through the summer months. When spraying, both humidity and wind are taken into consideration before the product is applied.

Spraying for dandelions in the parks and road ditches takes place in the fall. This provides the best results because plants are rooting for the winter.

Residents are reminded to watch for signs stating that an area has been treated. It is recommended that residents and their pets stay off the sprayed site for 24 hours.

Mosquito Control

The City operates an environmentally-sensitive mosquito control program that is designed to reduce nuisance populations in our community to tolerable levels.

Mosquito control occurs only on City-owned property. Larvacide product is applied weekly to areas of standing water within Humboldt municipal boundaries.

Residents are advised that the program cannot completely eliminate mosquitoes, but can only help control and reduce levels.

 

Humboldt's parks use environmentally-friendly pesticides and employ sustainable turf maintenance strategies.
