NORFOLK, Va. — The Norfolk District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, scheduled aerial mosquito treatment over Craney Island federal property tomorrow, 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. 

Eastern Aviation LLC – the district’s contractor – targets developing mosquito larvae with granular larvicide sprayed by a dust-cropper-style aircraft. Area beekeepers do not need to cover bees during spraying operations, as the chemical used does not affect bees.

In the event of inclement weather, operations may be moved to Monday. 

The Portsmouth Mosquito Hotline provides continuous updates on all aerial mosquito spraying in the area, 757-393-8666.
