Bronx set to spray for mosquitoes to protect residents from West Nile virusPosted: Updated:
City crews will be swarming around spraying to rid areas of the Bronx from mosquitoes, after the West Nile virus was detected in pools in Woodlawn, Baychester and Eastchester.
So far this year, there have been no human cases of the virus. However, between 1999 to 2004 there were 40 cases of West Nile in the Bronx.
The mosquito spraying will includes areas whose zip codes are 10461, 10465, 10466, 10469 and 10475. The spraying will begin at 8:15 p.m. on Monday and will last until 6 a.m. Tuesday.Related Story
