NORFOLK - With the large amount of rain Norfolk received at the end of August, the mosquitos have been prevalent which is why mosquito fogging has started.

Health Official John Kouba says mosquito fogging will be done in parks and residential areas during the evening.

Kouba says they spray in sections.

"We have to select our routes depending upon what the wind conditions are. We don't always know exactly whether it's more suitable for a east-west route or north-south route, but we try to adjust those routes according to the way the breeze is blowing so we can be as effective as possible."

Kouba says you’re encouraged to dump water out of things you may have laying around as that will help reduce mosquito development.

If you have any questions contact John at the Norfolk Fire Division.
