Mosquito Spraying Update from the State

Mosquito Spraying Update from the State

Good Evening everyone, I spoke to the Department of Public Health this afternoon, Mr. Robert W Oliver, Policy Projects Manager was very informative. Massachusetts Department of Health in conjunction with the Massachusetts Department of Agricultural Resource issued a Joint press release on the second round of spraying that will take place over the next few evenings. Parts of Attleboro are included in this next round of spraying.

“MDAR will conduct and monitor aerial spraying in specific areas of Bristol and Plymouth counties which is anticipated to begin on Wednesday, August 21, and continue over several evenings. However, the ability to spray is weather dependent and the schedule may change. Residents are encouraged to visit the DPH website at www.mass.gov/guides/aerial-mosquito-control-summer-2019 for the latest updates on spraying in their communities. ”
