Beaufort County Mosquito Control plans aerial training, surveillance or mosquito-spraying operations July 1-5. These flights could include application of public-health insecticides during daylight hours.

The county is required to notify the public about the aerial operations that use low-flying aircraft. Insecticides for adult mosquitos are not applied in salt marshes.
