Palm Beach Co. conducting mosquito spraying Wednesday evening

PALM BEACH COUNTY, Fla. - Palm Beach County will be conducting aerial mosquito spraying Wednesday after sundown, weather permitting. 

A Cessna 337 will target 270,000 acres west of Military Trail, including the Glades communities in western Palm Beach County.

The county said aerial spraying is necessary to control the mosquito populations that have increased due to the recent heavy rains.

Residents are also asked to drain or minimize standing water on their properties.
