Mosquito spraying planned for Blair, Bedford counties
Spraying for mosquito control is planned for select areas of Blair and Bedford counties this evening, weather permitting.
Around sunset, the Blair County West Nile Virus Program start truck-mounted spraying in the Loop area, including Reservoir Road and Loop Road in Blair Township and between Monument and Willow in the Fort Fetter area in Blair Township and Hollidaysburg.
Around the same time, the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection’s West Nile Virus Control Program will conduct spraying in parts of Snake Spring Township in Bedford County.
Both operations are targeted at controlling the population of adult mosquitos and the possible spread of the West Nile Virus. The alternate date for both spayings is Friday.
Residents are encouraged to eliminate stagnant water around their homes, which allows mosquitos to breed.
