BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — Palm Beach County is set to conduct aerial mosquito spraying roughly thirty minutes after sunset on Monday, October 10th, weather permitting.

This is the official statement from PBC:

“Aerial spraying is in response to increased mosquito levels and potential of vector-borne disease threats.  The planned coverage area includes approximately 260,000 acres covering populated areas west of Military Trail.  This area includes the Jupiter region, the Acreage/Loxahatchee/Royal Palm Beach region, Palm Beach Gardens, Wellington, unincorporated Lake Worth, Boynton Beach, Delray Beach, Boca Raton and the Glades communities of Pahokee, Belle Glade, South Bay and Lake Harbor.

Should weather cause a cancelation, the county will continue to attempt to spray by aircraft each evening until a successful spray operation is completed.  To find out if aerial spraying was successfully completed, please call the AERIAL SPRAY HOTLINE at 561-642-8775 to hear the most up-to-date information about the operation.

If you are going to be outdoors after dark, use an insect repellent containing DEET and wear long pants and a long-sleeve shirt. To further help control mosquitoes, residents are asked to drain or minimize standing water on their properties.”
