After aerial spraying successfully reduced high mosquito populations in flooded areas of Western Kentucky, Governor Steve Beshear directed the launch of the second part of his mosquito abatement initiative. Beginning Monday, crews will target mosquito larvae in standing flood waters.
Professional contractors conducted aerial spraying of more than 700,000 acres across Western Kentucky last week
“Our families have enough to worry about after the floods – they don’t need the additional trouble of high populations of biting insects,” said Gov. Beshear.
