PRESS RELEASE: MOSQUITOS TEST POSITIVE FOR WEST NILE
GREENVILLE: Trapped mosquitoes in the 3100 block of Bourland tested positive for West Nile Virus.
Trucks will be spraying Wednesday, June 16, Thursday, June 17, and Friday, June 18, 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.
