More skeeter spraying for College Point

Health Dept to Spray Queens for Mosquitoes

NEW YORK (AP) -- Queens [is] going to be sprayed with pesticide to combat mosquitoes and cut the risk of West Nile virus.

The city health department says the spraying will take place Monday in Queens... between 8 p.m. and 6 a.m. the following morning.

The mosquito-borne virus generally causes flu-like symptoms. It has been detected in several boroughs this year. But no human cases have been identified.

The areas to be sprayed in Queens are College Point, Malba, Whitestone, Linden Hill, Flushing and Murray Hill...
