Mosquito spraying taking place Tuesday

Local marshes in Southold Town will be treated for mosquito larvae tomorrow, Suffolk County officials said.
The county’s Division of Vector Control will be spraying the following areas with Vectobac 12AS from 5 a.m. to 8 p.m. tomorrow:

Southold: New Suffolk, Great Hog Neck, Pipes Neck Creek, Pipes Cove

• Riverhead: Indian Island, Overlook in Aquebogue, Aquebogue Farm, Crescent Duck Farm

“No precautions are recommended to prepare for this spraying, as the helicopter will be flying at a very low level over marsh areas and taking other precautions to control drift into inhabited areas,” according to the county. “Human exposure from this operation is unlikely and the products involved have no significant human toxicity.”

If weather conditions prevent the spraying, treatment will continue on the next suitable day, according to the statement.

In addition, in Riverhead, all of Veterans Memorial Park and Duke Dog Park at Stotzky Park on Pulaski Street will be closed as the town sprays for ticks.
