The Sussex County Office of Mosquito Control has scheduled an aerial application (by plane) on April 22-26, 2018 between the hours of 5 a.m. and 8 p.m. The Office will be using the product Vectobac GS EPA Reg # 73049-10 with an active ingredient of BTI (Bacillus thuringiensis israelensis) a bacteria for the control of larval (immature, Aquatic state) mosquitoes. info This product is a solid, granular material (I.E. ground up corncob husks). info Areas to be treated are uninhabited, wetland areas located in the following municipalities: Vernon Township, Wantage Township, Hardyston Township, Sussex Borough, Borough of Hopatcong, Town of Newton, Hampton Township, Lafayette Township, and Andover Township.
