Spraying for mosquitoes that had been set for Tuesday in Pikesville is canceled. Instead, spraying will take place Sept. 24 and Oct. 1 in Pikesville.
Catonsville spraying will take place on Wednesday, according to a news release Monday from Baltimore County Department of Health.
Spraying will begin at 7:30 p.m. on each of those dates. Maryland Department of Agriculture trucks will spray BioMist 30-30.
The spraying is being done because two new cases of West Nile virus in humans have been confirmed in these areas.
The virus "is still present in the Baltimore area," the release states.
These are different areas than previously sprayed. They include communities north of Slade Avenue as well as north of I-695.
Check the map attached to this article to see the areas to be sprayed.
The disease is transmitted through mosquitoes who have fed on an infected animal.
