The Atlantic County Office of Mosquito Control has scheduled a ground spray for a portion of Egg Harbor Township first thing Wednesday morning.

Officials say the area around Green Tree Golf Course will be sprayed with Zenivex, the trade name for etofenprox, between 5:30 and 6:30 Wednesday morning, weather permitting.

The spray is part of the county’s efforts to control adult mosquitoes and reduce the spread of mosquito-borne illness.

According to the county,

The Environmental Protection Agency does not require people to relocate or take special precautions during mosquito control spraying. The public may choose to avoid or minimize exposure by staying indoors during application; keeping windows shut; window fans and air conditioning off or set to circulate indoor air; keeping children’s toys indoors; keeping pets and their food, water dishes and toys indoors.
