West Nile Virus (WNV) activity in mosquitoes remains the focus of ground and aerial operations for Iberia Parish Mosquito Abatement District.

Citizens must take personal protective measures to avoid mosquito bites.

Wear repellent per label instructions, avoid outdoor activities when mosquitoes are most active at dawn and dusk, wear light colored long sleeves and pants if you must be outdoors.

The District will conduct aerial spray operations to support ground spray operations Wednesday (10/12) and Friday (10/14) evenings.

Flight decisions will be dictated by proper weather conditions.

Below are our planned sorties beginning near sundown and lasting approximately one (1.5) and one half hour.

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!

Wednesday (10/12) Loreauville / Sugar Oaks operations will focus in Loreauville, Suard Rd., Ed Broussard Rd. and Choupique Rd. as well as Sugar Oaks, Daspit, Interlaken, Vida Shaw, Sugar Oaks golf course and all areas in between.

Friday (10/14) Rynella, specifically, Duboin, Weeks Island Rd., Andras, BJ Estelle Dr., Avery Island Rd., and all points in between.
