Spraying will NOT occur if it rains late in the afternoon and/or if the wind speed is greater than 10 miles per hour, as both of these factors impact the application of the type of spray used. Spraying will occur at dusk, as that is the ideal time to spray in order for the application to be most effective.


NOTICE TO BEE KEEPERS: Pitt County Environmental Health (PCEH) uses is "Biomist 3 + 15" spray. PCEH ONLY sprays AFTER sundown, when bees are in their hives. PCEH also refers to the NC Department of Agriculture’s "Bee Check" map prior to spraying. PCEH also utilizes the "Tar River Bee Keepers Facebook Page" to notify members that spraying will occur in their areas. The sprayer is turned off upon approaching addresses identified on the Bee Check Map. Anyone, who has a hive, can register their hive with Bee Check.

LARVACIDE TABLETS: Larvacide tables can be used to kill mosquitos in standing water. Pitt County Health Department’s Environmental Health Division has a limited  supply of these tablets and will provide ONE (1) tablet per household as long as supplies last. Anyone interested in receiving one of these free tablets can visit Environmental Health at 1825 Hospital Drive, Greenville between the hours of 8:00am – 5: 00pm, Monday – Friday. Larvacide tablets can also be purchased at local home improvement stores.

REPORT AREAS: If you would like to report and area in need of spraying, you can call 252-902-3220 and leave a message. NOTE: Your message WILL be received, but due to all available staff now working on the issue, you will not receive a followup call back.
