Health E-News August 7, 2012
To reduce mosquito activity and the risk of West Nile virus, the Health Department will spray pesticide from trucks in parts of Brooklyn and Queens on Wednesday, August 8, between the hours of 8 p.m. and 6 a.m. the next morning, weather permitting. In case of bad weather, application will be delayed until Thursday, August 9 during the same hours. These neighborhoods are being treated due to rising West Nile virus activity with high and/or increasing mosquito populations.

Members volunteer with urban farms, community gardens, the NYC Parks Dept., schools and other organizations to foster a strong community of responsible urban beekeepers, to bring training & economic opportunity through beekeeping to underserved areas, to conserve and protect honeybees and other pollinators, and to contribute to the program and fundraising capacities of selected 501(c)(3) organizations.
