PRESS RELEASE: MOSQUITOS TEST POSITIVE FOR WEST NILE 

GREENVILLE – July 29, 2020, trapped mosquitos in the Ridgecrest area tested positive for West Nile Virus.  

Spraying will begin tonight Wednesday, July 29, and will continue Thursday, July 30, and Friday July 31 at 7:00 p.m., weather permitting. The spraying will take about 3-4 hours. It is recommended that citizens stay indoors during this time.  

To avoid mosquito bites, apply insect repellent on exposed skin and clothing when you go outdoors. Use an EPA registered insect repellent such as those containing DEET. Permethrin sprayed on clothing provides protection through several washes. Products with a higher percentage of DEET as active ingredient generally give longer protection.

Do not spray repellent on skin under clothing. Do not use permethrin on skin. For details on when and how to apply repellent, visit www.cdc.gov/westnile
