Parts of Port Republic will be treated for mosquitoes Friday morning, the Atlantic County Office of Mosquito Control said.
Ground treatment, which will take place between 5 and 7:30 a.m., is part of an effort to reduce the spread of mosquito-borne illness by controlling adult mosquito populations.
Special precautions are not required by the Environmental Protection Agency during the spray, the county said in a release.
Weather permitting, the spraying will take place in the area of the Chestnut Neck monument, Chestnut Neck Road to Milll Road, St. Johns Lane, and Main Street between Old New York and Mill roads.
“Residents may choose to avoid or minimize exposure by staying indoors during application, keeping windows shut, window fans and air conditioning off or set to circulate indoor air, keeping children’s toys indoors, keeping pets and their food, water dishes and toys indoors,” the release said.
