City to Spray for Zika-Carrying Mosquitoes in Brooklyn This Week


The city is continuing its effort to prevent the potential spread of the Zika virus this week by spraying for mosquito eggs and dropping larvicide pellets in the nonresidential Brooklyn areas of Fresh Creek Basin — the sliver of water that separated Canarsie and East New York — and Marine Park.

According to DNAinfo, the New York City Department of Health will be spraying and dropping the pellets from helicopters from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. today, August 8, as well as August 9 and 10.

For the city’s complete mosquito spraying schedule, see the Health Department’s Mosquito Spraying Events webpage.
