The town has received a report that the ballfields at Pismo are infested with ticks. Modern Pest Control will be at Pismo Beach Friday June 20th, 2019 to spray for ticks and mosquitoes from 9:00-11:00. The ballfields and beach are closed during that time period and for an additional 2 hours for the material to dry. Modern Pest is not spraying the grassy areas or near the water, just the perimeter along the forested areas which should take care of the problem. Once dry, the product being sprayed is no danger to people and pets.
