Alley Pond to be sprayed for West Nile
From Douglaston Patch:
The city's Department of Health will drop larvicide at a number of northeast Queens sites during the next five days to combat the spread of West Nile Virus-carrying mosquitoes.
The agency warned on its website that Alley Pond Park, Linden Hill/College Point, Edgemerea and Somerville would be sprayed by helicopter on Monday through Friday.
The spraying would be carried out between 6 a.m. and 7 p.m.
