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 chemicalâ€™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.
