BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — No, it’s not an invasion from North Korea… it’s Palm Beach County trying to kill mosquitos and it will happen this week.
From Palm Beach County:
Due to a large mosquito hatch from Hurricane Irma, the Palm Beach County Division of Mosquito Control will be conducting aerial spraying beginning at sunset on Tuesday, Sept. 19, weather permitting. Should weather conditions prevent spraying that night, the air spray will occur the first evening weather conditions allow.
The planned coverage area of approximately 270,000 acres includes all communities west of Military Trail.
Aerial spraying is necessary to control the mosquito population that has increased since Hurricane Irma. 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, 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.
