Mosquito Investigation

MOSQUITO INVESTIGATION

Central Massachusetts Mosquito Control Project personnel will be in Natick to investigate residents’ concerns about mosquitoes in their area on the following dates in May/June:

May 31, June 6, 7, 13, 14, 20, 21, 27, 28

The above dates are subject to change due to weather conditions, mosquito populations, mosquito virus activity and/or special event spraying. This program will shut down when cool night time temperatures become predominant in the area.


Specific information about our spray schedule will be on the CMMCP phone system after 3:30 p.m. each day, and will also be listed on our website: http://www.cmmcp.org/pesticide.htm.  

Requests for service may be recorded by calling the CMMCP office at 508-393-3055 between 7:00 am – 3:30 pm, Monday through Friday, or by logging on to http://www.cmmcp.org anytime.

Results of these requests may initiate an application of mosquito insecticides to defined site-specific areas. Such an application may be accomplished by using hand or truck-mounted equipment depending on the extent of the application.

PESTICIDE EXCLUSION REQUEST Per 333 CMR 13.03(1)(a): “Wide Area Applications of pesticides and mosquito control applications of pesticides approved by the State Reclamation and Mosquito Control Board shall not be made to private property which has been designated for exclusion from such application by a person living on or legally in control of said property.”

A request for exclusion may be made by following the process outlined here: http://www.cmmcp.org/exclusion.htm
