Due to rising West Nile virus and adult mosquito activities, the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene will spray pesticide from trucks in the above-listed towns.

The City will use a very low rate of Anvil 10 + 10 containing pyrethroid, phenothrin and synergist piperonyl butoxide for its adult mosquito control efforts. Thorough environmental review and epidemiologic analyses conducted subsequent to spray events have shown that the public in general is not expected to experience symptoms given the low level of exposure that may occur during the spraying events. Some individuals, however, may be particularly sensitive to ingredients in the pesticides and may experience adverse reactions. Such individuals could experience transient effects, such as skin, eye and mucous membrane irritation, as well as exacerbation of chronic conditions such as asthma or other respiratory conditions. The NYC
DOHMH advises persons to stay indoors during the ground spraying of pesticides.
