The Morris County Mosquito Extermination Commission is using its website 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 website, http://www.morrismosquito.org/, is updated on a regular basis with the latest news about the commission’s activities in the fight against mosquitoes.

Kristian McMorland, superintendent of the Mosquito Commission, said information about spray operations, including times and specific spray locations and neighborhoods, are posted on the website as soon as they are scheduled.

“It’s important that we keep the public up to date about our mosquito control efforts, and our website is the best way to do that,” McMorland said. “Accessing the website will provide residents with such information as when and where spraying and water management activities will be taking place, or if any of the viruses associated with mosquitoes are discovered here in Morris County.”

The specific spraying locations can be found on the website, http://www.morrismosquito.org/, which also contains tips on how people can help protect themselves from mosquito bites and control the pesky insects around the home, McMorland said.

Additional information may also be obtained by calling the Morris County Mosquito Extermination Commission office at 973-285-6450.
