New Albany to spray to kill mosquitoes

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The City of New Albany will spray chemicals in several areas meant to help eradicate mosquitoes, which can carry the West Nile virus.

The spraying will happen in a area bordered on the south by the Ohio River, west to Interstate 64, north to I-265, and east to Silver Creek.  The city will also be working with Floyd County to focus on particular areas of the county.  The spraying will begin at dusk and continue until midnight.

The city will use a portable unit placed into the back of a truck for the fogging.  The chemical to be used is called Duet, and the city says the EPA has approved it to be applied in outdoor, residential, and recreational areas. 

The city warns bee keepers that they need to cover their hives—bees are usually in their hives between 7-8 pm (dusk).
