Iberia Parish Mosquito Abatement District will conduct aerial operations to address persistent mosquito populations Monday (10/5), Tuesday (10/6) and Wednesday (10/7) 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.

Operations will begin near sunset and last approximately one and one-half hours (1.5).

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!
