According to the Health Department, the areas listed below have an increase in West Nile virus activity as well as high numbers of Culex mosquitoes, which have been known to transmit West Nile virus. The trucks will be spraying very low concentrations of Anvil® 10+10. When used properly, it poses no significant risks to human health. However, the Health Department advises that you stay indoors during the spraying.
