PRESS RELEASE – MOSQUITOS TEST POSITIVE FOR WEST NILE

PRESS RELEASE – MOSQUITOS TEST POSITIVE FOR WEST NILE

GREENVILLE: Trapped mosquitos, in the area of Arnold Park, tested positive for West Nile Virus.

Trucks will begin spraying at approximately 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., Wednesday, June 22, Thursday, June 23, and Friday, June 24, 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: https://www.cdc.gov/westnile/index.html.
