Advisory

Notice from Middlesex County regarding Aerial Larvicide Treatment for mosquitoes in uninhabited areas, May 10 -11

To control mosquitoes, the Middlesex County Mosquito Extermination Commission routinely inspects and treats by helicopter non-residential areas including marshes, wetlands and other natural areas, which are common breeding grounds for mosquitoes.

The Commission advises that low altitude granular application using a helicopter will be conducted in uninhabited, wetland areas in North Brunswick on Tuesday, May 10 – Wednesday, May 11 between 5 a.m. and 8 p.m.

Due to their size and inaccessibility by ground vehicles, these areas are treated when necessary with larvicides from a low-flying helicopter pursuant to heavy rainfall or tidal events.

PLEASE NOTE: THIS IS NOT A ‘SPRAYING’ ACTIVITY.

No precautions are recommended for this treatment. Human exposure to product is very minimal.

You may see the commission’s helicopter flying over residential areas. However, NO applications are made over residential neighborhoods. The pilot is merely positioning the helicopter to approach wetlands in nearby areas.

If the conditions are not ideal, the treatments will not be conducted. For more information, please contact the Mosquito Commission at (732) 549-0665 from 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday - Friday.
