Broward County's Mosquito Control is taking to the sky to dump pesticide on the northwest area of the city Saturday morning, from 4 to 6:30 a.m.

County officials say they're going forward with aerial spraying because residents have been complaining about mosquitos.

Officials say the chemical rain shower is totally safe.

Still, they advise residents with asthma, allergies, bronchitis, or any other respiratory funkiness to stay inside.


The program should provide residents some relief from the bloodsucking insects.

Unfortunately, though, the mosquito spray won't get you high.
