·1 min read

After a mosquito carrying West Nile Virus was found last week, the city of Brockton will spray the city with aerosol to kill the insects on Wednesday.

According to a statement from city officials, the mosquito-killing spray is harmless to humans and has no meaningful impact on the environment.

The disease-carrying bug was found by the Plymouth County Mosquito Control Project. The group notified city officials of the positive test last Friday.

The spray will first be spread in the Campello neighborhood, where the West Nile-positive mosquito was found.
