Aerial Spraying update
The first round of aerial spraying for mosquitoes in areas of southeastern Massachusetts has been successfully completed
as of Sunday, August 11. It remains critically important for people in communities at critical, high and moderate risk for
EEE to continue to take personal precautions against mosquito bites. These steps include using EPA-approved bug spray,
wearing long sleeves and pants outdoors to reduce exposed skin, and cancelling outdoor activities in the hours from
dusk to dawn when mosquitoes are most active.
To achieve maximal effectiveness, a second round of aerial spraying will take place in the coming weeks in the
southeast region. Follow-up mosquito testing data will determine which communities will be in the second spray zone.
Please check back here for further updates as those plans are finalized.
