New York - Health Department To Begin Spraying For Mosquitoes
New York - The Health Department will begin spraying for mosquitoes next week.
Crews will be on Staten Island, in the Bronx and Queens next week applying larvicide by helicopter to marshes and non-residential areas that are common breeding grounds for mosquitoes.
The spraying will take place on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, between 6 a.m. and 7 p.m.
Mosquitoes are a known carrier of the West Nile virus.
