PRESS RELEASE: MOSQUITOES TEST POSITIVE FOR WEST NILE

GREENVILLE: Trapped mosquitoes in the Turtle Creek area tested positive for West Nile Virus.

Trucks will be spraying Wednesday, June 2, Thursday, June 3, and Friday, June 4, starting approximately 6:30 p.m. - 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 an active ingredient generally give longer protection.

Don’t spray repellent on the skin under clothing. Don’t use permethrin on the skin. For details on when

and how to apply repellent, visit www.cdc.gov/westnile
