STAFFORD - Steps are being taken to control the mosquito population in Sandy-ravaged Stafford Township.

Workers with the Ocean County Mosquito Commission are testing stagnant waters and searching for mosquitoes and larvae that can potentially spread diseases like the West Nile Virus.

Officials say that much of the storm debris and abandoned boats can hold standing water, which is ideal for mosquito breeding.

Neighbors are being asked to empty out containers on their properties and report standing water on private properties.
