Iberia Parish - Iberia Parish Mosquito Abatement District will conduct aerial operations to address persistent mosquito populations Monday (8/3) and Tuesday (8/4) evenings. The District is asking citizens If you must be outdoors --- wear repellent, cover exposed skin and avoid outdoor activity when mosquitoes are most active. Also, remember repellents with 30% DEET or less are labeled for use on children 2 years or older when applied according to instructions and by a parent. If weather conditions are favorable operations will begin near sunset and last approximately one and one-half hours (1.5).

During this period, only hypersensitive individuals or persons that wish to avoid all exposure to chemicals in the designated spray area should refrain from outdoor activities; otherwise all other citizens can proceed with normal outdoor activities!

Citizens will notice low flying aircraft --- If the aircraft is overhead DO NOT attempt to follow the path of the aircraft. The aircraft is traveling quickly and will be out of the area in a brief period!

Monday (8/3) operations will focus in Laurent / Grand Marais, Rynella, Migues, Lydia, Weeks Island Rd., College Rd., Collins Rd., Cora Ln. and all points in between.

Tuesday (8/4) operations will focus in Jeanerette / St. Joe, specifically Little Valley Rd., Alta Dr., Hubertville Rd., Jeanerette, Linden Rd., E. Hwy 90 and all points in between.
