BABYLON - Suffolk officials say they will be spraying for West Nile virus tomorrow.
The aerial assault comes after the county had its first confirmed human case of the virus. County officials say a Babylon Town resident contracted West Nile virus and is now recovering.
Tomorrow's aerial spraying will be done in Babylon, North Babylon, West Islip and West Bay Shore. Dr. Scott Campbell, a lab chief who works for the Suffolk County Health Department, says the spray is made of the same ingredients used for tick and flea prevention. Campbell says the spray only lingers for about 15 minutes before evaporating.
The aerial spray is set to begin in Babylon at 7:30 p.m. tomorrow night and last until 11:30 p.m. Suffolk health officials confirm human case of West NileSuffolk County Pesticide Notification
