**MOSQUITO SPRAYING**

Weather conditions permitting, the Middlesex County Mosquito Commission will be conducting spraying in South River tomorrow, August 15th between the hours of 6:00pm and midnight. The rain date for the spraying is Friday, August 16th.

A map of the area being treated is available at the following link:

https://www.google.com/maps/d/u/0/viewer?mid=1qftfVLI4lYfKV7BWTRwzJyen6LI&ll=40.436853962887945%2C-74.3712175&z=15

The US Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) & Rutgers University has approved and recommended these mosquito control products for residential mosquito control and considers them to pose no unreasonable health risk when applied according to label directions. Neither the USEPA nor NJ Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) requires relocating or taking special precautions during spraying however, residents can take following precautions to reduce exposure:

• Plan your activities to limit time spent outside during times of possible insecticide treatments. Move your pets, their food, and water dishes inside during ULV application. Also bring clothing and children’s toys inside. Stay away from application equipment, whether in use or not.

• Whenever possible, remain indoors with windows closed and with window air conditioners on non-vent (closed to the outside air) and window fans turned off during spraying.

• Avoid direct contact with surfaces that are still wet from pesticide spraying. Do not allow children to play in areas that have been sprayed until they have completely dried (approximately one hour).

• If you must remain outdoors, avoid eye and skin contact with the spray. If you get spray in your eyes or on your skin, immediately flush and rinse with water.
