BELLE CHASSE - Authorities in Plaquemines Parish say aerial spraying will be done Monday and Tuesday to help ward off the threat of citrus greening.

The disease is transmitted by an insect and threatens citrus fruit crops in the parish.

Jesuit Bend and the east bank will be treated Monday, while more spraying in Jesuit Bend and then south to Venice on the west bank is planned on Tuesday, Parish President Billy Nungesser says.
