Mosquito Sprayers Do Their Part

Mosquito spraying has increased across the Coast in an effort to control the spread of West Nile Virus. Sprayers have been working extra shifts, and also using a more potent spray.

Crews are using small airplanes to hit areas hard to reach by truck. They decided where to go each day based on mosquito test through out the county, and residents request for service.

Spraying for mosquitos is one of the only large-scale ways to stop the spread of the virus.
