Is aitutaki sprayed for mosquito control?

I read somewhere recently after the zika outbreak that aitutaki was being treated with mozzie spray like some other tropical islands I've been to do. Is this true ? I always get bitten badly by mozzies and sand flys!

HI deedee, There has been some spraying lately but I don't think it is a regular on-going thing. The major resorts usually do their own spraying. It's highly recommended that you bring insect repellent with you preferably a brand with a significant percentage of DEET and use it early morning and late afternoon when the mozzies are most active. Even with spraying it's impossible to get rid of them completely.
