NYC Health Department Will Spray Pesticide to Reduce Adult Mosquito Populations Tonight.
To reduce mosquito activity and the risk of West Nile Virus, the Health Department will spray pesticide (Anvil 10+10) from trucks in parts of Greenwood Heights, Park Slope and Windsor Terrace in Brooklyn, on Wednesday, August 3, 2011 between the hours of 8:15 p.m. and 6 a.m. the following morning, weather permitting. In case of bad weather, application will be delayed until Thursday, August 4, during the same hours. The Park Slope Weather Report is saying there currently is a 50% chance of rain tonight which should postpone the spraying. Remember to turn off your air conditioners and keep your kids inside until this poison wears off, especially if you are invertebrates.
