Calcasieu Parish Mosquito Control Trying to Battle Mosquitoes - and Rainy Weather 8/11-18
Calcasieu Parish is in the midst of the worst mosquito outbreak it has seen in three years, according to Calcasieu Parish Mosquito Control officials.
“We’ve been getting a lot of phone calls,” said Mosquito Control Director Scott Willis.
Mosquito Control’s efforts to treat the outbreak have been hampered by all the rain and cloud cover – trucks can’t spray when it’s raining and Mosquito Control planes can’t fly when the cloud cover is too low.
Willis asked residents to be patient and Mosquito Control will be out there to help as soon as possible.
“We’re aware of the issues and we’ll be there to help,” said Director Scott Willis.
In the meantime, Mosquito Control asks residents to wear repellent especially during peak mosquito times – dawn, dusk and at night.
