The city will spray insecticide this weekend in an area generally bounded by Preston Haven Drive, Jamestown Road, Royal Lane, and Edgemere Road because of high mosquito counts. The spraying is scheduled to happen between 10 p.m. Sunday and 3 a.m. Monday, and again between 10 p.m. Monday and 3 a.m. Tuesday.
While the insecticide is approved by the EPA, residents should stay indoors during those times. If you come into contact with the spray, wash thoroughly with soap and water. It’s supposed to break down quickly in sunlight and leave no residual effect.
