Mosquito spraying in Mahoning

Mahoning County Public Health received 2021 Ohio EPA Mosquito Control Grant Funding for mosquito control measures. One of those measures includes spraying for adult mosquito control. Spraying will help reduce the population of mosquitos and help prevent the spread of mosquito borne diseases such as West Nile Virus.

Adult Mosquito Control will occur in the following limited areas within Mahoning County (one week later than previously announced):

Chaparral Campgrounds on June 28

Canfield Fairgrounds, Coy Park and Mill Creek Park on July 26

Spraying will be performed between dusk and dawn. If rainy or windy conditions are present, then spraying will be rescheduled. Beekeepers with beehives can call the Environmental Health Division (330-270-2855 Option 2) so spraying can be avoided in those locations.
