South, Massey West, Ranui, Henderson North, Western Heights, Palm Heights, McLaren Park, Oratia, Glen Eden West, Glen
Eden, Sunnyvale, Henderson, Henderson North, Lincoln, Glendene, Kelston, Harbour View, Avondale, Waterview; parts of New
Lynn, Mt Albert and Point Chevalier. Traherne Island and the north western motorway are also included.
A decision will be made tomorrow whether spraying will go ahead on Thursday.
