PRESS RELEASE: MOSQUITOS TEST POSITIVE FOR WEST NILE

PRESS RELEASE: MOSQUITOS TEST POSITIVE FOR WEST NILE


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


Trucks  will  be  spraying  Wednesday,  September  16,  Thursday,  September  17,  and  Friday, 

September  18,  at  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 

active ingredient generally give longer protection.

Don’t spray repellent on skin under clothing. Don’t use permethrin on skin. For details on when and 

how to apply repellent, visit www.cdc.gov/westnile
