Weather permitting, Benton County will be getting rid of some pests.

The Benton County Mosquito Control board will be doing aerial spraying starting around 8:45 p.m. Monday.

No West Nile Virus has been detected in any insects, but overall numbers are high in the areas where the spraying is planned. No adverse effects are expected for residents, but the Mosquito Board had some advice:

Residents that own bees or fish ponds may wish to cover them during the application as an extra precaution, but the low level of pesticide used in addition to the timing of the application should prevent any detrimental effects. Wash fruits and vegetables that may have been exposed to pesticides before consuming.

For maps of specific areas to be sprayed, you can log on to the Benton County Mosquito Control website.
