The event is to spray down the area due to high populations of adult mosquitoes’ ability to transmit the West Nile Virus, which has been detected in the area.

The spray will be conducted by York County Mosquito Disease Control using a truck-mounted ULV control using the product AquaDUET, designed to quickly knock down populations and maintain control.
