Aerial Operation On Today – Thursday 20 November
The aerial operation against gypsy moth will get under way today at approximately 5.25am this morning (Thursday 20 November).
The operation will start at the hospital end of the treatment zone and travel north.
ALL schools will be treated prior to 8am and, weather permitting, the operation should take half the morning to complete.
Today (Thursday) being a school day means the aircraft will be out of the air between 8-9am while children travel to school and then again, if necessary, between 12.15-1.00pm and 3.00-4.00pm – the times most children eat their lunch and travel home from school.
The public can call the 24 hour free phone number, 0800 96 96 96, for updates and general information about the programme. People can also listen to Newstalk ZB (1296 AM or 97 FM), Classic Hits (98.6 FM) or ZM 89.8 (89.8 FM) for updates.
