Just as the area south of Central Street was sprayed for mosquitoes last night, the rest of Evanston will get its turn on June 14, weather permitting, according to the North Shore Mosquito Abatement District.

What the agency officially calls “targeted adult mosquito control operations” is scheduled for 8 p.m. until 2 a.m. the following morning, and will include a number of suburbs north of Evanston, as well as the parts of Evanston north of Central Street.

 The agency also announced that a West Nile-infected mosquito has turned up in one of its traps in Niles. Previously, infected mosquitoes were found in NSMAD traps located in Glenview and Morton Grove.

None has appeared in traps in Evanston so far this year, according to the agency.
