County-wide aerial spraying for mosquitoes is scheduled to resume TONIGHT

Message from - Johnston County Government

County-wide aerial spraying for mosquitoes is scheduled to resume TONIGHT, Monday, October 8th from approximately 8PM-4AM, weather permitting. This application will complete Johnston County's preventive Mosquito Abatement plan. Spraying did not occur last night due to the contractor experiencing an unexpected delay in shipment. The affect areas to be sprayed are the remainder of Zone 1 and Zone 2. There will be no repeated spraying as areas are only sprayed once.

Environmentally sensitive areas of the county have been excluded and spraying will not occur during times of increased recreational activities. The small amount of insecticide sprayed over an area does not pose a health risk to people or pets (CDC). If people prefer to stay inside and close windows and doors when spraying takes place, they can, but it is not necessary.

You may contact Johnston County Health Department with your questions at 919-989-5180.
