City-wide Spraying for Mosquitos in Loveland
Two more confirmed cases of West Nile Virus in Loveland residents prompted the first city-wide mosquito spraying last night. Next week, as many as nine Colorado Mosquito Control trucks will dispense fog through Loveland for the first city-wide spraying since 2007. The first application is planned for Sunday between 8 p.m. and 1 a.m. The Loveland Reporter Herald has more on this story.
