Marine Corps Recruit Depot Parris Island will conduct aerial spraying for mosquito control during the day May 5 through May 8.

The depot uses low-flying planes to spray EPA-registered insecticides and sprays approximately two hours before sundown if weather permits.

Beekeepers within a five-mile radius are urged to keep hives covered.
