Local marshes in Riverhead Town will be treated for mosquito larvae Thursday, Suffolk County officials said.

The county’s Division of Vector Control will treat the following areas: Indian Island, Overlook in Aquebogue, Crescent Duck Farm, Aquebogue Farm and Millar Farm.

Over in Southold, the following areas will be treated Thursday: New Suffolk, Great Hog Neck, Kerwin Blvd., Pipes Neck Creek, and Pipes Cove.

The marshes will be treated by helicopter from 5 a.m. to 8 p.m. using Vectobac 12 AS, according to a press release.

“No precautions are recommended to prepare for this spraying, as the helicopter will be flying at a very low level over marsh areas and taking other precautions to control drift into inhabited areas,” the release states. “Human exposure from this operation is unlikely and the products involved have no significant human toxicity.”

If weather conditions prevent the spraying, treatment will continue on the next suitable day, according to the statement.
