Parts of central Greenville are scheduled to be sprayed June 9-11.

City of Greenville News Release

Trapped mosquitoes, in the area of Arnold Park, 3314 Gordon Street, tested positive

for West Nile Virus. 

Trucks will begin spraying at approximately 6:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., Wednesday, June 9, Thursday,

June 10, and Friday, June 11, 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
