These are impacting many parts of south Louisiana.

Black flies are terrible right now in many areas of East Baton Rouge Parish. These tiny flies are daytime biters particularly in late morning. Spraying adults is not an effective control strategy. Not only do the females bite, but they try to crawl in your ears, nose and eyes. Very annoying.

St. Tammany Parish Government

With the first human case of West Nile Virus in St. Tammany Parish confirmed today by the Louisiana Department of Health, it is even more important to do everything you can to prevent mosquito breeding, and to take precautions to protect you and your family.

Pat Brister, St. Tammany Parish President, announced today, “that all St. Tammany Parish residents need to do their part in preventing other cases of the West Nile Virus by taking the necessary steps to reduce the risk of mosquito breeding and bites.” Brister went on to say, “the St. Tammany Parish Mosquito Abatement District personnel do a wonderful job, but we each have a responsibility to help prevent the spread of mosquito-borne diseases.” (more @ http://www.stpgov.org/index.php/residents/news )

Together we helped to educate 120+ students on mosquito control methods, bite prevention, and disease awareness.
