SAN DIEGO – County crews will be spraying a neighborhood in Nestor, an area in southeastern San Diego, for Zika virus prevention Wednesday.

County Vector Control crews will hand-spray a neighborhood in Nestor to keep invasive Aedes mosquitoes from potentially spreading the Zika virus after mosquitoes were found near a person who contracted Zika outside the U.S., health officials announced Monday. County crews plan to hand-spray the area Wednesday, weather permitting.

Neighbors were informed of the upcoming spraying Monday when county crews knocked on doors. They notified people about the spraying and taught them how to keep mosquitoes from breeding near their homes.

The neighborhood is about nine acres in size, south of the Interstate 5-State Route 905 interchange and includes residences on Pikake Street, Deep Haven Lane, Lawndale Street and Quadra Avenue.
