The Ashland Board of Health, in cooperation with the Central Massachusetts Mosquito Control Project (CMMCP), provides mosquito control services to Ashland residents and businesses.
An Integrated Pest Management (IPM) approach is used, featuring education, source reduction and larvaciding. Adultaciding using an Ultra-Low Volume (ULV) spray is used as a last resort for biting adult mosquitoes.
Central Mass. Mosquito will begin their 2019 larval mosquito control program on or about March 25, 2019 (See their notice HERE).
Additional notices will be issued starting in May before residential fogging applications begin. These notices are issued two weeks prior to each scheduled month. Please see the September spray schedule HERE.
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, learn more about reducing mosquito emergence HERE.
CMMCP also has a tire collection program which residents may participate, please see DETAILS HERE.
