MEDIA ADVISORY Spraying Scheduled in Northern Queens Last Night Postponed
New Schedule, with Date and Time, to Be Announced
Ground-based mosquito spraying scheduled for last night - overnight August 14th - in northern Queens was postponed as a result of wind speeds exceeding 10 miles per hour. The Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH) will release a new schedule for spraying in this area when plans are finalized and weather permits.
