Anastasia Mosquito Control District aerial spraying scheduled tonight for St. Johns County

The Anastasia Mosquito Control District will conduct an aerial spray throughout St. Johns County to combat the outbreak of mosquitoes due to Hurricane Matthew and local flooding, 8 p.m. – 11 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 19. The spray area will include Flagler Estates, Armstrong, Nocatee, St. Johns, St. Augustine, and West Augustine. Please remain indoors along with all pets during this time.

All St. Johns County recreational fields will be closed to the public for use during the aerial spray.

The decision to conduct aerial spraying for mosquitos lies solely with the Anastasia Mosquito Control District, which is an independent special district created by the Florida Legislature and is not under the jurisdiction of the St. Johns County Board of County Commissioners. Questions and concerns regarding aerial spray can be directed to the Anastasia Mosquito Control District at (904) 471-3107.
