Mosquitos Test Positive For West Nile In Greenville

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
