Mosquito Complaints


Complaints about mosquitoes may be registered by calling the Central Massachusetts Mosquito Control Program (CMMCP) office at 508-393-3055 between 7:00 a.m. - 3:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. The results of an investigation may warrant the use of a mosquito insecticide to defined, site-specific areas of the town. Such an application may be accomplished by using hand or truck mounted equipment, depending on the extent of the application.


Town Code


Per 333CMR13.04: "No intentional application of pesticides shall be made to private property which has been designated for exclusion from such application by a person living on or legally in control of said property." Notices were sent out in February to alert residents of the pesticide exclusion process; CMMCP will continue to accept exemptions during the spray season. Residents should contact the CMMCP office during business hours or apply for an exclusion through their website.
