Orient Heights to get mosquito spraying on Thursday

The Suffolk County Mosquito Control Project will use truck-mounted aerosol shpritzers to douse areas in the vicinity of Orient Avenue, Boardman Street, Andrew Road and Horace Street between dusk and 11:30 p.m. - or on Monday if the weather's not good.

The trucks will spray sumethrin:

Mosquito control applications of sumithrin do not pose a significant risk to people or pets due to the chemical’s low toxicity and small amount used in spraying. As with any pesticide, people are advised to minimize their exposure to the chemical. If people see a spray truck approaching, they should go indoors for a few minutes while the spray dissipates. Residents are also advised to close any windows that face the street during the scheduled spraying hours.
