When mosquito spraying is done in a residential area, the Environmental Protection Agency and other Public Health Organizations recommend the following to limit pesticides exposure:

  • If possible, remain inside or avoid the area whenever spraying takes place and for about 30 minutes after spraying.  That time period will greatly reduce the likelihood of your breathing pesticide in air
  • Close windows and doors, and turn off window air conditioning units or close their vents to circulate indoor air before spraying begins. Window and air-conditioner vents can re-opened about 30 minutes after spraying.  Managers of buildings with ventilation systems should shut off intake during spraying.
  • If you come into direct contact with a pesticide spray, protect your eyes.  If you get spray in your eyes, immediately rinse them with water.  Wash exposed skin.  Wash clothes that come in direct contact with spray separately from other laundry.
  • If spraying just occurred, minimize your contact with outdoor surfaces and wash skin that has come in contact with these surfaces.
  • Pick homegrown fruits and vegetables you expect to eat soon before spraying takes place.  Rinse homegrown fruits and vegetables (in fact, all produce) thoroughly with water before cooking or eating them.
  • Cover outdoor tables and play equipment before spraying or wash them off with detergent and water after they have been sprayed.
  • Bring laundry and small toys inside before spraying begins, (wash with detergent and water if exposed to the pesticide during spraying)
  • Bring pet food and water dishes inside, and cover ornamental fishponds to avoid direct exposure
