Aerial Mosquito Spraying


Coahoma Residents:

Due to the high concentration of mosquitoes in our city, the City of Coahoma, along with a coalition of eleven area cities, will conduct aerial spraying for mosquitoes sometime between June 20-23. 

  • The plane will spray Coahoma through the overnight hours, weather permitting. The actual time of spraying will be determined by where we fit in the line-up of cities. Actual spraying should not take more than 30 minutes.
  • Aerial spraying is particularly effective to reach areas that truck-mounted sprayers cannot reach.
  • Vector Disease Control International is the company that will be spraying. They specialize in aerial application, have been in business since 1992, and have over 40 offices across the United States.  These products are being applied in strict accordance with label instructions as set forth and approved by the Environmental Protection Agency. The company is fully licensed and certified by Federal monitoring agencies.  Visit vdci.net or www.npmapestworld.org for more information about the company. 
  • The product used will be Perm-X UL 31-66; visit clarke.com for product information.


Thank you for your patience with this process!  The City of Coahoma is committed to the health and safety of our citizens.
