Mosquito Control in Holliston

Local Town Pages - Central Massachusetts Mosquito Control Project personnel will be in Holliston on the following dates to investigate residents’ complaints about mosquitos: July 6, 11, 12, 18, 19, 25 & 26.

Complaints about mosquitoes may be registered by calling the Central Massachusetts Mosquito Control Project office at (508) 393-3055, Monday through Friday between 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

A notice about the spray schedule is posted on the CMMCP phone system after 3:30 p.m. each day or on the website www.cmmcp.org.

All 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 termperatures become predominant in the area. A detailed notice about our spray schedule is posted on the CMMCP phone system after 3:30 p.m. each day, and it is also listed on our website at http://www.cmmcp.org/pesticide.htm

Requests for service may be recorded by calling the CMMCP office at (508) 393-3055 between 7 a.m. and 3:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, or logging onto http://www.cmmcp.org. Results of these requests may initiate an application of mosquito insecticides to defined, site-specific areas of town. Such an application may be accomplished by using hand or truck mounted equipment depending on the extend of the application.

Per 333CMR13.03 (1)(a): “Wide Area Applications of pesticides and mosquito control applications of pesticides approved by the State Reclamation and Mosquito Control Baord 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.” Notices were sent to all City and Town Clerks on January 20, 2017 to alert them of changes to the pesticide exclusion process; CMMCP will continue to accept exemptions during the year following the process outlined here: http://www.cmmcp.org/exclusion.htm.
