There have been a lot of questions about mosquito spraying in recent weeks. But, one thing that everyone needs to know is the City of Vandalia is not in charge of the mosquito spraying—that falls under the jurisdiction of the Fayette Mosquito Abatement District. Ward Two Alderman Russ Stunkel is a member of the Mosquito Abatement District Board and he says they are out spraying, but they are covering a large area. He also added that pellets and foam do work better than spraying and they are limited on the amounts of time per year they can spray. With the heavy rains over the past month, it has left standing water and led to mosquito problems all around the area.
