Beginning at sunset Tuesday, Palm Beach County will conduct an aerial assault on mosquitoes.

The spraying is due to a large hatch of the insects from tropical rains, according to the county.

The county plans to cover 180,000 acres in the following communities:

  • Wellington
  • Royal Palm Beach
  • Loxahatchee
  • The Acreage
  • Jupiter Farms
  • Palm Beach Country Estates
  • Caloosa
  • Glades

 

If the spraying is canceled due to weather the county said it will continue to attempt to spray by helicopter every night until it is successful.
