York County's Mosquito Disease Control program will spray in Manchester Township to control mosquitoes Tuesday night.

Beginning just after dusk, a truck-mounted control will spray residential and recreational areas to deter adult mosquitoes. That's due to a high population of adult mosquitoes that can transmit West Nile virus in the area, according to a York County news release.
