We recognize the difficulty in the notification process, and we strive to inform as many people as possible regarding our adulticiding, but it is also the responsibility of all residents to be informed of any procedures that they require information about.
- About 2 weeks prior to the start of each month in the summer season, CMMCP will send a schedule to the Town/City Clerk, Board of Health, Police Departments and other departments as requested by the municipality outlining the scheduled days/evenings we will be in their area. They are notified that some additional work may be performed off-schedule, usually as a result of high mosquito populations, mosquito-borne disease or weather factors. Specific spray areas are not outlined to the towns at this point due to continuing incoming service requests and the surveillance that needs to be gathered before each application is performed. This schedule is also posted on our website.
- By 3:30PM each day, our website will list all potential spray areas (city/town & street names) for the evening.
- The CMMCP phone system will forward to an answering service after 3:30PM. This service will have the same information listed on our website. During business hours all requests for this information is handled in person by CMMCP staff.
- Residents requesting service are notified prior to an application performed in their area by e-mail, in person or by a note left at their door. Field staff will survey the areas to determine the extent of the application, look for additional larval areas, and educate the resident about basic mosquito biology and proper sanitation methods to reduce mosquito breeding in their yards. The resident will be questioned to see if special circumstances exist, such as any health concerns, areas in the yard to concentrate on or avoid, etc. The field technicians are also available to answer any questions the resident may have at that time. Brochures and other literature are given to all service requests with additional information.
