The City of New Albany will begin its annual Mosquito abatement program beginning the week of May the 14th. This control program will be using foggers that covers up to a two mile radius to apply the mosquito product Duet. The active ingredients in Duet have been carefully tested. Duet is registered for ground and aerial applications in outdoor residential and recreational areas. Duet’s active ingredients break down rapidly in sunlight into carbon dioxide and water vapor. Duet has been widely used in mosquito control since 1975. Spot applications may be used per Floyd County Health Department request. Application times will start at dusk and continue to midnight.

We are pleased to announce that City of New Albany has on staff two licensed applicators. These employees have received their license through the Office of Indiana State Chemist via Purdue. All licensed employees are required to have 15 hour of continuing education every 5 years to maintain their license. 

These Fogging machines are annually calibrated and certified by Clarke Mosquito Control to maintain the specified particle size.

For more information, or to report problem areas, please call the New Albany Wastewater Utility at 812-948-5320.
