On Thursday, August 30th, the village of Mamaroneck provided an update on its efforts to reduce mosquito populations in the Shore Acres area, including spraying or fogging more often and in expanded areas, and making the switch back to the pesticide Anvil.
This year, Westchester County failed to apply larvicide to all village of Mamaroneck catch basins, as had been done in previous years. There was a delay in the application of permits on time.
The village recently got permits from the state to use mosquito larvicide in the Otter Creek Salt Marshes. Residents are also reminded to check sources of standing water around the home, especially after rainstorms.
