This sheet answers some basic questions about a mosquito control product in use in Essex County. Essex County Mosquito Control, along with several other resources (listed at the end of this sheet), can provide more detailed information. What is Aqua-Reslin and how is it used? AQUA-RESLIN is an insecticide product that is recommended for Ultra Low- Volume mosquito control in New Jersey by Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey. It contains the pesticides called “PERMETHRIN & PIPERONYL BUTOXIDE (PBO)”. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) current evaluation considers PERMETHRIN and PBO containing products to be slightly toxic with minimal potential risk to people when used properly as part of an integrated mosquito control program. AQUA-RESLIN is used for the control of adult mosquitoes. While habitat management and measures to control immature mosquitoes in water are preferred and most used, the spraying of adult mosquitoes is called for when biting populations reach critical levels or when a disease organism is present in adult mosquitoes. A very fine mist is sprayed into the air since flying mosquitoes must directly contact the pesticide in order for it to be effective. HOW CAN I AVOID MY EXPOSURE TO AQUA-RESLIN?
• Risk to the general public from the use of AQUA-RESLIN is minimal. Avoiding
exposure is always the safest course of action, particularly for populations that may be at higher risk such as pregnant women, the elderly and those with chronic illnesses. Any possible exposure risk can be reduced by following some common sense actions:
• Pay attention to notices about spraying found through newspapers, websites,
automated telephone messages or distributed by municipal, county or state agencies.
• Plan your activities to limit time spent outside during times of possible pesticide
• Move children’s toys out of application areas.
• Move animals and their food and water dishes out of application areas.
• Stay away from application equipment, whether in use or not.
• Whenever possible, remain indoors with closed and with window air conditioners
on non-vent (closed to the outside) and window fans turned off during spraying.
• Avoid direct contact with surfaces that are wet from pesticide spraying. Do not
allow children to play in areas that have been sprayed until they have completely dried (approximately one hour).
If you must remain outdoors, avoid eye and skin contact with the spray. If you get spray in your eyes or on your skin, immediately flush and rinse with water. WHAT ARE THE SYMTOMS OF EXPOSURE TO AQUA-RESLIN? Irritation or sensitization sometimes occurs after exposure, causing an asthmatic condition or skin rash. The chance of experiencing these symptoms of exposure with proper use is low. You should contact your physician, other medical providers or the New Jersey Poison Information and Education System (NJPIES) at 1-800-222-1222 if you experience these symptoms following a pesticide spraying. HOW LONG WILL AQUA-RESLIN LAST IN THE ENVIRONMENT? The AQUA-RESLIN spray stays in the air for a short time until it lands on surfaces. PERMETHRIN has a low persistence and breaks down in water and soil within 1 to 25 days. PERMETHRIN breaks down faster in sunlight. WHERE CAN I GET MORE INFORMATION ON AQUA-RESLIN?
