With potentially deadly mosquito-borne viruses continuing to be detected in the Coachella Valley, crews will begin pesticide spraying operations Saturday morning that are expected to continue into the fall.
Spraying will occur on weekend mornings in Palm Desert and La Quinta through Sept. 13, from 2 a.m. to 7 a.m., except for one Sunday in August, according to the Coachella Valley Mosquito and Vector Control District.
In La Quinta, spraying will be focused on the Cove neighborhood, bounded by Calle Tampico, Avenida Bermudas, Calle Tecate and Avenida Montezuma. In Palm Desert, crews will be deployed to an area bounded by El Paseo, Portola Avenue, Haystack Street and Highway 74.
