Rain, warm temps prompt mosquito spraying in Palm Beach County

picture by CNN picture by CNN

It’s almost winter but Palm Beach County is gearing up to battle a summertime pest.

The Palm Beach County Division of Mosquito Control has ordered aerial spraying over the western communities on Wednesday.

Crews will target mosquitoes that have hatched due to recent heavy rain and unseasonably warm temperatures.


A Cessna 337 will spray areas west of Military Trail, including the Glades, if the weather permits.

Residents are urged to drain, or try and prevent, standing water on their property.
