Aerial mosquito spraying in West Palm Beach will target areas west of Military Trail

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - In an effort to get rid of some pesky mosquito populations, Palm Beach County will be conducting aerial spraying Monday night.

Starting at sundown, a helicopter will target areas west of Military Trail and cover 270,000 acres.

Here are some tips for keeping mosquitos away from your home:

* Remove standing water

* Check clogged gutters

* Cover boats

* Empty plastic kiddie pools and toys

If you spend a lot of money on bug zappers and other bug ridding electronics, the county says you may be wasting your money.

County officials say since they don't emit carbon dioxide they don't help against biting mosquitos and just attract them to your porch.
