The Town of Batesburg-Leesville will be spraying for Mosquito control through September. The Town of Batesburg-Leesville received a Mosquito Control Support Grant through DHEC in 2017 and was able to upgrade our mosquito spraying equipment. The process uses Aqua Reslin, a synthetic vector control product from Bayer. The town avoids areas where residents have Honey Bees, gardens and other reasons that they don't want spraying to be conducted. If you wish to be added to this list please email Public Works Director David Padgett at DPadgett@Batesburg-Leesville.org . If you wish to learn more about Aqua Reslin please visit Bayer's website at https://www.vectorcontrol.bayer.com/solutions/products/aqua-reslin-super .
