The Mosquito Control Division of the City of Aberdeen will do a city wide spraying for Mosquitoes on Monday August 6th between the hours of 8:00 PM and 1:00 A M.
West Nile virus has been identified in Aberdeen and city officials urge citizens to take reasonable precautions to avoid being bitten by mosquitoes.
You can reduce the risk of getting West Nile virus by eliminating mosquito habitat around your property, applying insect repellents and wearing proper clothing when outdoors.
The Adulticiding equipment is noisy and travels at 10 to 15 mph. The mosquito control trucks are identified and travel with a flashing yellow lights.
To ensure spray effectiveness during the spraying operations, the wind must be 15 mph or less and no inclement weather present. Winds higher than 15 mph or inclement weather will result in the spraying being suspended until conditions improve.
