Spraying for mosquitoes will happen in Iberia Parish this week, officials say.
Here are the details:
Persistent populations of flood water mosquitoes will be addressed by aerial operations this evening (10/4) and Thursday (10/6) evening. Below are our planned sorties beginning near sundown and lasting approximately one (1.5) and one half hours.
During this period, only hypersensitive individuals or persons that wish to avoid all exposure to chemicals in the designated spray area should refrain from outdoor activities; otherwise all other citizens can proceed with normal outdoor activities!
Citizens will notice low flying aircraft --- If the aircraft is overhead DO NOT attempt to follow the path of the aircraft. The aircraft is traveling quickly and will be out of the area in a brief period!
