PRESS RELEASE: MOSQUITOS TEST POSITIVE FOR WEST NILE

RIDGECREST AREA

GREENVILLE: Trapped mosquitos in the Ridgecrest area tested positive for West Nile Virus.

Trucks will begin spraying at approximately 6:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., Wednesday, June 23, Thursday, June 24, and Friday, June 25, 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
