Spraying for Mosquitoes

Spraying for Mosquitoes

by Emily Baird on August 8, 2010

The Licking County Health Separtment wants to make sure it prevents the spread of West Nile Virus among mosquitoes.

So it will be conducting more spraying sessions this week in the cities of Newark, Alexandria, Kirkersville, Hanover Township, and Pataskala. A Buckeye Lake campground will also be targeted. All sprayings will take place after dusk.

Licking County was the second county in the state to find West Nile Virus in mosquitoes this year. Both reports came from mosquito populations in the Newark area. For a scheduled list of all the sprayings, you can visit www.lickingcohealth.org.
