Tentative ULV spray areas for <DATE>
These are the areas received by citizen’s request. CMMCP does not perform routine, area-wide spraying. Names and house numbers have been removed for privacy purposes. Multiple listing indicates multiple requests received on that street, but not necessarily in the same area. Some or all of these streets may be done, or maybe only individual areas, or parts of a neighborhood. Additional areas not listed here may be sprayed due to surveillance gathered at that time or additional resident’s complaints. This program is dependent on such factors as time, weather and prevalent mosquito populations, and is subject to the spray operator’s discretion.
BEGINNING AUGUST 6, 2001, ALL TENTATIVE SPRAY AREAS RECEIVED BY CITIZEN’S REQUEST SCHEDULED FOR THAT EVENING WILL BE LISTED ON THE CMMCP PHONE SYSTEM AFTER 3:30PM. PLEASE CALL 508.393.3055 TO ACCESS THIS INFORMATION, PRESS "0" AT THE PROMPT TO HEAR THE RECORDED MESSAGE.
This list gets posted each day between 1 & 3PM.
Precautions to observe during a spray application:
Generally, there is no need to relocate during mosquito control spraying. The pesticides have been evaluated for this use and found to pose minimal risks to human health and the environment when used according to label directions. Although mosquito control pesticides pose low risks, some people may prefer to avoid or further minimize exposure. Some common sense steps to help reduce possible exposure to pesticides include:
- Listen and watch for announcements about spraying in the local media and remain indoors during the application to the immediate area. (Please remain inside for 15-20 minutes to allow the pesticide to drift through the area, or longer at your discretion)
- People who suffer from chemical sensitivities or feel spraying may aggravate a preexisting health condition, should consult their physician and take special measures to avoid exposure if they feel this is necessary. (Please check this link to find out how to exclude your property: https://www.cmmcp.org/pesticide-information/pages/pesticide-exclusion)
- Close street-facing windows and turn off the "outside air" setting (if any) on window air conditioners when spraying is taking place in the immediate area. (Central air units do not take in outside air, it’s OK to leave them on. You may open windows 15-20 minutes after the application, or longer at your discretion)
- Do not let children play near or behind truck-mounted applicators when they are in use. Pets should be brought inside if possible or their cages covered to allow a more thorough application to be performed – any accidental exposure to pets should not cause a problem, we are using a pesticide similar to ones used for flea and tick control, but we use lower concentrations than most pet products.
