Aerial Mosquito Spraying Notice…

Dear Residents, 

Flight disruptions, while common, are often unpredictable.  VDCI could not spray between Friday, June 21, 2024, and Sunday, June 23, 2024.  We want to keep you informed that aerial spraying, a crucial part of our environmental maintenance, has been tentatively scheduled for Friday evening, June 28, 2024, through Saturday, June 29, 2024, weather permitting. The wind must be below 11 miles per hour for the flight to proceed, ensuring the safety of all involved.

Thank you all so much for your continued patience with this process.  The Coalition is working diligently to perform aerial mosquito spraying before July 4, 2024.

Weather permitting, the plane will spray the City of Shallowater from late Friday evening, June 28th, or late Saturday evening, June 29th through the overnight hours. The actual time of spraying will be determined by where we fit in the line-up of cities.  

Actual spraying of the city should not take more than 30 minutes.


Aerial spraying is particularly effective to reach areas in the city that truck-mounted sprayers cannot reach.

Vector Disease Control International is the company that will be spraying. They specialize in aerial application, have been in business since 1992, and have over 40 offices across the United States. These products are being applied in strict accordance with label instructions as set forth and approved by the Environmental Protection Agency. The company is fully licensed and certified by Federal monitoring agencies. Visit or for more information about the company.

  The product used will be Perm-X UL 31-66; visit for product information.

  The coalition also recommends people bring in their pets during the aerial spray.  If outdoor pets cannot be brought inside, their water and food should be changed to avoid consuming the mosquito spray product. 


Thank you for your patience with this process! The City of Shallowater is committed to the health and safety of our citizens.


Please do not hesitate to contact City Hall at 806-696-4300 if you have any questions.
