The City of Lebanon recommends citizens take the necessary spraying precautions when spraying is conducted in your zone:

Do not allow children or pets to follow the Mosquito Control truck while spray unit is engaged.Make sure children are indoors during the spraying process.Make sure pets are indoors or out of the front yard during the spraying process.Do not allow children or pets to play in your front yard until at least 30 minutes after the spray has been administered.Close windows and doors in your home during the spraying process.

Spraying and larviciding will not fully eliminate the presence of mosquitoes.  Therefore, the City of Lebanon stresses taking the necessary measures to fully protect yourselves from mosquito bites, including:

Limit time outdoors when mosquitoes are present.If you must be outdoors then wear a mosquito repellent that contains DEET.Wear long sleeves and long pants when spending time outdoors.Remove standing water from your property – especially in children’s toys, clogged gutters, old tires, flower pots, trash cans and wheelbarrows. 

Sprays and granular products are available at retail stores for citizens to safely use around their homes and on private property.
