Following West Nile Virus being found in parts of the county recently, the Atlantic County Office of Mosquito Control plans to treat parts of Northfield and Linwood early Friday morning between 5:00 and 6:00.

The following areas will be sprayed, weather permitting:

Northfield: areas bounded by Mt. Vernon Avenue, Shore Road, Oak View Drive, Wabash Avenue, Tilton Road, Infield Avenue, and First Avenue

Linwood: areas bounded by Revere Avenue, New Road, Central Avenue, and Oak Avenue

The county says ground spraying will be done using Scourge, the trade name for resmethrin, applied as an ultra low volume aerosol. Residents may choose to avoid or minimize exposure by staying indoors during the spraying, keeping windows shut, keeping children's toys indoors, and keeping pets and their food and water dishes and toys inside.

If you would like more information, call (609) 645-5971 ext. 4277.
