GREENVILLE: Trapped mosquitos, in the area of Arnold Park, tested positive for West Nile
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 skin. For details on
when and how to apply repellent, visit: https://www.cdc.gov/westnile/index.html.
