Specially equipped trucks have been spraying areas in the far North End over the weekend, trying to reduce the level of EEE and West Nile Virus infected mosquitoes in the city. Mayor Mitchell’s Executive Aide, Neil Mello tells WBSM News Bristol County Mosquito Control has taken aggressive action since the city’s mosquito risk level was raised to “high” last week.
