We do not have a specific date, we are scheduled between Friday, June 21st – Saturday, June 22nd between the hours of 8 p.m. and 6 a.m. We apologize that we cannot give you a more concrete day and time, but the flying schedule will depend on wind speeds and other weather factors.

Important Updates regarding aerial mosquito spraying and street sweeping: 
1) Aerial spray is tentative for this coming Friday/Saturday. Wind speeds will determine if the company is able to spray. 
2) Advanced Power Sweeper began sweeping this morning, but unfortunately, a part in their vehicle broke. They began sweeping with a replacement sweeper. However, that sweeper did not utilize water, and the dust build-up was too great to continue. They are anticipating being back in Idalou at the end of the week, possibly early weekend.
We apologize for these delays and appreciate your cooperation. We will provide updates once we receive word from either one of these companies.
