Mosquito spraying to take place in Baltimore City Sunday evening

Posted at 9:57 PM, Sep 11, 2016

The Maryland Department of Agriculture in conjunction with Baltimore City, will be spraying for mosquitos Sunday evening in various neighborhoods around the metropolitan area.

The action comes as a result for recent concern over mosquito-borne illnesses such as West Nile virus and Zika.

The public is advised to minimize outdoor activities on spray nights.

Within the next 24-48 hours after spraying, state and local inspectors will visit various properties for mosquito site breeding and will conduct backyard spraying as needed.

Spraying will begin at 7:30 p.m.
