There's a mosquito explosion in Ouachita County and probably all over South Arkansas with all the rain we've had. Ouachita county Judge Robbie McAdoo said spraying is in full swing in Ouachita county.

McAdoo says there are lots more bee hives in the county now and sprayers have been told to try to avoid areas where they know there are bee hives.

McAdoo says there's a problem trying to spray for the Zika virus mosquito. They are out during the day and the spraying takes place in the evenings. He said so far there's been no reports of the Zika virus in Ouachita county.
