Mosquito Control

The Central Mass. Mosquito Control Project (CMMCP) will be spraying in select areas of our community.  This is done by request only and only after CMMCP investigation confirms the need to spray.

CMMCP will investigate resident’s complaints about mosquitoes on the following dates in 2016:

August 1, 8, 15, 22, 29

Dates are subject to change due to weather conditions, mosquito populations, and mosquito virus activity.  Spray schedules are posted on the CMMCP phone system after 3:30 p.m. each day and are also listed at CMMCP Pesticide Information.

If you wish to be excluded from mosquito spraying, contact CCMCP (508-393-3055).  For more information, see CMMCP’s Frequently Asked Questions.
