The Suffolk County Mosquito Control Project reports it's scheduled some anti-biter spraying in the area of Orient Avenue, Boardman Street, Andrew Road and Horace Street after dusk on Aug. 3 (with a rain date of Aug. 4).
If residents see a spray truck approaching, they are advised to go indoors for a few minutes while the spray dissipates. Residents are also advised to close windows.
The project adds:
To help prevent mosquitoes from breeding, BPHC advises residents to limit places around the home where standing water can collect. People should turn over unused flower pots, buckets, wheelbarrows and garbage cans; remove leaves and other debris that can clog gutters and trap water; dispose of or cover old tires; and cover swimming pools when not in use.
