Aerial Mosquito Spray Operation Not Fully Completed

Weather conditions made it impossible to fully complete the mosquito aerial spraying operation Thursday evening. More information about further plans to complete the spraying will be available later this morning.

The first application of insecticide started at approximately 8:15 p.m. and was expected to take 2.5 hours. Spraying was planned over two 16-square mile areas near mosquito pools that have tested positive for Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE).

The Whiting spray zone is centered on Stickney Road between Cornwall and Whiting. The Brandon spray zone lies between Leicester and Brandon along nearly all of Grove Street.
