The Tulsa City-County Health Department says it is spraying more than it has in the past three years because of more positive cases of the West Nile Virus.
Crews have most recently sprayed near the 21st and Harvard area.
If the health department gets a positive test result from West Nile testing in an area, spraying will occur within that square mile and all adjacent square miles.
The West Nile Virus is most prevalent from late August through September.
Crews will spray Monday through Friday weather permitting.
If you have a complaint about mosquitoes in your neighborhood, call the Health Dept. mosquito hotline at 918-595-4219 to request spraying in your area.
