NORFOLK, Va. — The Norfolk District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, scheduled aerial mosquito treatment tomorrow, Oct. 25, over the federal property on Craney Island.

Eastern Aviation LLC – the district’s contractor – will spray liquid larvicide to target developing mosquito larvae from a dust-cropper-style aircraft

Beekeepers in affected areas do not need to keep bees covered during spraying operations, as the chemical used does not affect bees.
