The Town of Ashland is a Member Community to the Central Mass Mosquito Control Project (CMMCP). Membership in CMMCP offers residents access to a full program of mosquito control services. CMMCP has made great strides over the years to reduce dependency on spraying by placing greater emphasis on larval control, public education, ditch maintenance and source reduction.
Spraying is done only after request by a property owner. If mosquito-borne viruses are identified, spraying is done if it has been determined that spraying is an appropriate response.
Central Mass Mosquito Control Project personnel will be in Ashland to respond to residents' concerns about mosquitoes in their area on the following dates in July:
July 6, 13, 20, 27
All dates are subject to change.
Requests for service may be recorded by calling the CMMCP office at (508)393-3055 between 7:00 AM – 3:30 PM.
Residents may exclude their property from any part of our program at any time through the Pesticide Exclusion link HERE. Please note that this exclusion expires at the end of the calendar year, and must be renewed each year.
The public can play a major role in controlling vectors carrying West Nile Virus by eliminating all standing water water in containers on their property, or from ABANDONED POOLS. Learn more about reducing mosquito emergence HERE.
CMMCP also has a tire collection program which residents may participate, please see DETAILS HERE.
