County to Conduct Aerial Spraying for Mosquitoes in Western Areas

For immediate release: September 13, 2012
Contact: Mosquito Control, 561-967-6480

The Palm Beach County Division of Mosquito Control will be conducting aerial spraying beginning at sundown on Saturday, Sept. 15, weather permitting.

The planned coverage area of approximately 270,000 acres will target populated areas west of Military Trail from Jupiter to Boca Raton and the Glades communities. The aircraft used is a Huey helicopter.

Aerial spraying is necessary to control the mosquito population that has increased during the recent heavy rains. To further help control mosquitoes, residents are asked to drain or minimize standing water on their properties, if at all possible.

If you are going to be outdoors after dark, be sure to use an insect repellent containing DEET and wear long pants and a long-sleeve shirt.

The Aerial Spray Hotline is 561-642-8775.
