The city larvacides over 100 sites around Amarillo. This activity occurs when environmental conditions produce areas that are suitable for larvae to start hatching in stagnant standing water. Larvaciding kills mosquito larvae in standing water to prevent mosquito eggs from developing into adult female mosquitoes that bite. Space spraying involves the use of an ultra low volume machine that dispenses pesticide into the air to kill adult mosquitoes.
