Union County Mosquito Control Thermo Fogging – August 18, 2016

Union County Mosquito Control will be conducting a thermo fogging operation of the area surrounding Bernadette Court, Brown Avenue, and Weber Avenue on Thursday, August 18, 2016 at approximately 9:00 A.M. The thermo fog will consist of a white cloud and a strong odor. A representative from either the Springfield Fire or Police Departments has been requested by the UCMC to observe the operation.

The County suggests that residents turn off air conditioning units and close windows for the short period of time during fogging.  They advise avoiding outdoor activity and bringing pets (along with water/food dishes) indoors during fogging.  Any garden vegetables would be wise to wash before eating.  If you have any questions or concerns please contact their office at 908-654-9834/9835.
