Marine Corps Recruit Depot Parris Island --
In an effort to control sand flea and mosquito populations, Marine Corps Recruit Depot Parris Island is scheduled to conduct aerial spray operations on April 16-17.
If weather permits, night spray activities will occur on one of these nights after sunset.
The insecticides used present no threats to humans, plants, or animals in the area and are approved by the Environmental Protection Agency; however, beekeepers within a five-mile radius are urged to keep hives covered.
For any questions, please contact the MCRD Parris Island Natural Resources and Environmental Affairs Office at (843)-228-3102.
