BATON ROUGE- The East Baton Rouge Parish Mosquito Abatement and Rodent Control will conduct aerial mosquito spraying for the first time of the season on Wednesday night.

The aerial spray trails will either be over the area north of Zachary or the southern part of the parish near the County Club, according to assistant director, Randy Vaeth.

Sprays will be conducted depending on the number of mosquitoes in various areas and disease activity, according to Vaeth.

Vaeth also said that starting at the end of June, the West Nile virus season begins and aerial spraying will increase.
