Aug. 25, 2020 - The Air Force is scheduled to conduct a final aerial mosquito spraying over Langley Air Force Base, Craney Island and a small portion of Portsmouth Wednesday evening. A  specially modified C-130 airplane will deliver the spray after sunset to minimize impact to non-target insects such as bees, and to decrease exposure to people within the application area. Although no insecticide applications will occur outside the target areas of Langley Air Force Base and Craney Island, the Air Force recommends that bee keepers adjacent to these areas cover their hives to help prevent any loss of bees.
