The Office will be using the product Vectobac GS EPA Reg # 73049-10 with an active ingredient of BTI (Bacillus thuringiensis israelensis) a bacteria for the control of larval (immature, Aquatic state) mosquitoes.


This product is a solid, granular material (I.E. ground up corncob husks).


Areas to be treated are uninhabited, wetland areas located in the following municipalities:

Vernon Township, Wantage Township, Hardyston Township, Sussex Borough, Town of Newton, and Lafayette Township
