Middletown will conduct a maintenance program to help control the growth of weeds and other vegetation near guide rails and concrete medians on main and connecting roads throughout the township, according to a public notice.
The program will include roadside spraying of pesticides, specifically Accord XRT and Arsenal, and will run from Sept. 2 through Sept. 30, according to the notice. Robert Kimball, DEP Pesticide Applicator License # 53682B, was selected for the job.
The pesticides will be sprayed near guide rails using a 200 gallon power sprayer with a hose and a handheld spray nozzle. A five gallon backpack unit will be use for concrete medians.
According to the notice, residents will be notified at least 12 hours before the spraying begins, “except for Quarantine and Disease Vector control only when conditions necessitate pesticide applications sooner than that time."Those seeking additional information about advertised applications can contact Kimball at 732-615-2000 x 2123.
