Greenville: West Nile-Positive Mosquitoes Trapped; City Spraying 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.
