Mosquito Spraying Starts Monday

BOCA RATON, FL ( — The huge helicopter you may see spraying areas west of Military Trail Monday evening will be attempting to make the mosquito situation a little bit better.

From Palm Beach County:

The Palm Beach County Division of Mosquito Control will be conducting aerial spraying Monday evening, June 30, beginning at sundown, weather permitting. Should unstable weather conditions prevent spraying, it will take place on the next available night that conditions allow.
The coverage area of approximately 270,000 acres will target populated areas west of Military Trail. 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 you are going to be outdoors after dark, use an insect repellent containing DEET and wear long pants and a long-sleeve shirt.
The Aerial Spray Hotline is 561-642-8775.
