West Nile Virus Mosquito Control

We are continuing to treat municipally owned bodies of water with larvicide to safeguard against the spread of the West Nile Virus. Homeowners wishing to treat privately owned water sources may purchase larvicide at local hardware stores and home improvement centers.

Leawood Property Maintenance Code, Section 301.4.1 MOSQUITO CONTROL:

Property owners shall be responsible for the prevention, control and treatment of mosquitoes. Prevention and control shall mean that all areas of property and particularly bodies of water shall be treated so as not to allow the breeding of mosquitoes.

Treatment shall consist of the application of chemicals to an infected area, which will exterminate the mosquito egg, larva or adult stage of the insect. Treatment shall not endanger the general health, safety and welfare.
