New Area of Pikesville To Be Sprayed Against Mosquitoes

Because two more human cases of West Nile virus have been confirmed within the county, the Maryland Department of Agriculture will spray parts of Pikesville and Catonsville Sept. 18 and 19, respectively.

More cases of West Nile virus mean more insecticide in Pikesville.

According to Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz's office, the state will spray in Pikesville against mosquitoes on Sept. 18.

They'll be in Catonsville on Sept. 19.

This latest round will be north of where the Maryland Department of Agriculture has sprayed the past two weeks.

Beginning at 7:30 p.m., they'll be in areas north of Slade Avenue, and northward up the Reisterstown Road corridor and some surrounding areas.

Residents are asked to stay indoors that evening, beginning when the spraying begins at 7:30 p.m.

Check the map attached to this article, to see if your street is included in the spray area.

For more information, visit the Baltimore County website.
