The Morris County Mosquito Extermination Commission is using its Web site again this summer to alert county residents about spraying and other efforts to control mosquitoes and minimize the threat of the diseases they carry.

The Web site, www.morrismosquito.org, is updated on a regular basis with the latest news about the commission’s activities in the fight against mosquitoes.

Information about spray operations, including times and specific spray locations and neighborhoods, will be posted on the Web site as soon as possible.

Spraying has already started in some portions of the county, including East Hanover, Florham Park and the meadows surrounding Morristown Airport, which have become the county’s worst mosquito producer.

The Web site also contains tips on how people can help protect themselves from mosquito bites and control the pesky insects around the home.
