A Samson man wants to try and rid Geneva County of disease-carrying mosquitoes from the sky.
Crop duster Jerry Wise owns and operates Ag Flying Service in Samson. Wise asked the Geneva County Commission about spraying a pesticide from his plane.
A similar program took place in South Florida. The board felt an aerial assault would be too expensive with a price tag of around $360,000.
They are looking at the possibility of spraying identified mosquito breeding areas.
