City sprays for mosquitoes using GPS technology

Posted: Updated:
HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

With rain comes mosquitoes, but now there's a way you can find out when the last time vector control fogged your neighborhood.

There are GPS devices installed in every vector control truck that tracks when the last time an area was sprayed.

That information is then uploaded onto their website. It may vary when you see a fogging truck because new EPA laws allow for fogging to happen as needed, not on a scheduled basis.

"The advantage of that is that we can focus on areas where we're having problems as opposed to saying, 'we'll get you every Tuesday whether you have mosquitos or not.'"

To find out the last time your street was fogged, visit the city's website.
