M. Larry Richard: A MESSAGE FROM PARISH MOSQUITO ABATEMENT DISTRICT -  9/9/2018
Emergency

For more information contact: Herff Jones

Mosquito surveillance has indicated a marked increase in floodwater mosquitoes. The Iberia Parish Mosquito Control District is aware of the nuisance and discomfort caused by these numerous, aggressive, biting mosquitoes.


The District will be spraying from the ground and the air to arrest these populations. Operations will continue across the entire Parish as indicated by surveillance trap location data as weather allows until these populations are in check. If you must be outdoors --- wear repellent, cover exposed skin and avoid outdoor activity when mosquitoes are most active. Residents throughout the Parish are urged to follow these simple guidelines recommended by the CDC.

Apply mosquito repellent that contains DEET, Picaridin or Oil of Lemon Eucalyptus and apply as directed on the label!

Protect children sensitive to insect bites with repellent and cover exposed skin --- there are many preparations sold in drug stores and camping sections of local stores that are formulated for adults as well as children.

Wear light colored clothing with long sleeves and long pants when outdoors particularly at DAWN and DUSK.

Avoid wearing perfumes or colognes when outside for prolonged periods.

If you have any questions or mosquito related problems, feel free to contact our office at (337) 365-4933.
