FYI Here’s how Nassau & Suffolk County Mosquito Prevention and Control works:
1. Preventing mosquitoes from breeding. In Suffolk County, helicopters treat salt marshes when needed. In Nassau County, both helicopters and boats attempt to treat breeding spots.
2. Killing the adult mosquitoes. Spraying occurs by neighborhood. Neighborhoods are notified via telephone of any upcoming treatments. Usually, neighborhood spraying doesn’t start until July.
