County to do mosquito spraying

****update****Last night’s attempt to conduct aerial spraying

was canceled due to mechanical issues.



Repairs have been completed and

Palm Beach County Division of Mosquito Control

will re-attempt aerial spraying beginning at

sunset on Friday, June 1, weather permitting.

The Palm Beach County Division of Mosquito Control will be conducting aerial spraying beginning at sunset on Thursday, May 31, weather permitting.

The planned coverage area of approximately 280,000 acres covers populated areas west of Military Trail and the Glades communities. Aerial spraying is necessary due to a large hatch of mosquitoes from the recent heavy rains. The action is not in response to mosquito-borne disease.

To further help control mosquitoes, residents are asked to drain or minimize standing water on their properties.

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