Environmental Pest Control of Lawton made it to town today to begin spraying for mosquitoes to protect those outdoors and involved in summer sports.

The plan of attack is to start at the reservoir and work around Altus until every neighborhood and detention pond in the area has been sprayed.

The larvicide they will be deploying later will kill mosquito eggs up to 150 days. Another method they plan to use to get rid of the mosquitoes is by driving the neighborhoods with an aerosol spray that should eliminate the threat of airborne insects.
