Milford launches mosquito control program

Milford officials gathered in Eisenhower Park Monday to launch the city's mosquito control program.

The comprehensive program looks to kill off mosquitoes before they can fly. Crews are now putting a microbe-based larva killer in standing water to kill off growing mosquitoes. In a couple of weeks, the same will be done in catch basins.

Mayor Jim Richitelli says the city will spend about $60,000 on the program. The mayor says the money is spent to keep residents protected and keep them feeling safe from mosquito-related problems like the West Nile virus.
