Palm Beach Gardens isn’t letting up in its fight to prevent the Zika virus from spreading farther north.
The city is doing an additional spraying of the pesticide Duet to kill daytime and night-flying mosquitoes that could be carrying the virus. Zika can cause microcephaly, a birth defect that causes developmental delays and seizures, in children and a fever and rash in adults.
