Aerial and Ground Sprays for Mosquitoes

— Written By

Craven County Government has plans to initiate aerial and ground sprays for mosquitoes, beginning as early as this Friday (October 6, 2018). Duet (sumithrin and prallethrin) will be used in aerial sprays; Biomist 315 (permethrin) will be used in ground sprays. Spraying will take place in the evenings, which should minimize impacts on bees.
