    NORFOLK, Va. — The Norfolk District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers scheduled aerial mosquito treatment over federal property on Craney Island Monday.

    Targeting developing larvae, the treatment will be sprayed by a dust-cropper-style aircraft from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. If conditions don’t allow for spraying, the inclement weather date is Tuesday.

    Beekeepers in affected areas do not need to keep bees covered during spraying operations, as the chemical used does not affect bees.

    The Portsmouth Mosquito Hotline provides continuous updates on all aerial mosquito spraying in the area and can be reached at 757-393-8666.
