The Iberia Parish Mosquito Abatement District will conduct aerial operations Tuesday (9/17) evening weather permitting. WNV detections in mosquito pool samples as well as a marked increase in floodwater species mosquitoes warrant aerial abatement intervention in areas south of Hwy. 90 --- the Port of Iberia, Rynella and Lydia. Operations will begin near sunset and last approximately two and one half (2.5) hours.
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 a low flying aircraft --- If the aircraft is overhead DO NOT look up to stare or attempt to follow the path of the aircraft. The aircraft is traveling quickly and will be out of the area in a brief period!
Operations Tuesday night (zone 4A) will include all areas West to East from Avery Island Rd., Migues, the Port of Iberia to Weeks Island Rd. as well as (zone 5) Pesson, Lydia, Boudreaux, Bayou Jack and Weeks Canal --- South of Highway 90 and just North of Avery and Weeks Islands.
