Hiram resumes mosquito treatment program

Hiram’s annual treatment program has resumed to try to reduce mosquitoes.

In and around the incorporated limits of downtown Hiram, the fogging treatments are conducted between 5 a.m. and 7 a.m. every Monday and Thursday along the rights-of-way of city streets, weather permitting.

Environmentally safe, the fogging chemical is not a pesticide but a growth inhibitor and is not harmful to humans, pets or wildlife, according to officials. The treatment prevents mosquito larvae from maturing to adult mosquitoes. While these efforts will not eliminate mosquitoes entirely, they will reduce their populations and help in preventing the transmission of mosquito-born illnesses.
