Low-level aerial mosquito spraying will take place Saturday beginning at 8 p.m. over parts of East and West Jefferson.

The spraying was supposed to have taken place Friday but had to be postponed due to mechanical difficulties, according to a news release from Jefferson Parish government.

Parts of Jefferson, Kenner, Marrero, Westwego and Lafitte-Barataria will be sprayed for nuisance mosquitoes, conditions permitting.

The parish said that if the weather prevents the spraying from going forward Saturday, it will occur on the next evening that weather permits.
