Trucks will be driving through central Tracy and spraying pesticide in an effort to control the spread of the West Nile virus.

The San Joaquin County Mosquito & Vector Control District has announced ground spraying on streets in an area of the city bordered by West Lowell Avenue to the north, West 11th Street to the south, Lincoln Boulevard to the west and North Tracy Boulevard to the east, according to the district’s website.

The district has scheduled spraying between 4 and 6 a.m. either Friday, Aug. 30, or Saturday, Aug. 31.

Vector control uses Pyronyl 525 or Evergreen 60-6 to kill adult mosquitoes.
