NORFOLK, Va. — The Norfolk District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, and the city of Portsmouth, Virginia, will conduct joint aerial mosquito spraying Friday at federal properties on Craney Island, adjacent city properties and the Churchland area in Portsmouth. 

Crabbe Aviation, LLC of Mechanicsville, Virginia, will conduct the aerial spraying between 5 and 10 p.m. in areas north of state Route 164, weather permitting. 

Beekeepers in the affected areas should keep bees covered during spraying operations, and people with known allergies should stay indoors.

If conditions don’t allow spraying Friday, the inclement weather date is Saturday. 

The Portsmouth Mosquito Hotline, 757-393-8666, will provide continuous updates on Friday’s aerial mosquito spraying.
