Instead of treating the entire spray blocks (crosshatched areas numbered on the map), only the hotspots with the mosquito larvae identified by weekly surveillance were treated resulting in much smaller treatment footprint (violet colored blocks) on the marsh. The 2018 aerial applications were targeted toward areas with heavy mosquito breeding.

Beth Young built her first boat out of driftwood tied together with phragmites behind her family’s apartment above the old Mill Creek Inn in Southold. Nowadays, she spends most of her time kayaking, learning about shellfish, writing newspaper stories, trying to sail a Sunfish, and watching the way the bay changes from day to day.
