The City of Zion contracts with Clarke Environmental Services for mosquito management.
Currently, the City budgets one city-wide application per year: The treatment is performed in the evening, between dusk and dawn,
weather conditions permitting. Should weather conditions prevent the application, the application will be made the next day that
favorable weather conditions exist. Additional treatments may be applied on the evenings prior to the July 4th and Jubilee Days celebrations in the downtown area only.
Residents on the prior notification list for the City will receive an automated call, text or email the afternoon of the spraying (based on how they originally signed up).
Residents can be added to a list to be notified prior to future adult mosquito control applications via email or text or high mosquito populations at the Resident Hotline @ www.clarkeportal.com/hotline.
Clarke Environmental Services offers information regarding prevention and control homeowners may use to help control mosquitoes on their property. Visit www.clarke.com.
