[ARCHIVED] UPDATED Information Regarding EEE - Date of Record 08/27/19


Spraying did occur in Shrewsbury last night (Monday night into Tuesday early morning).  

Please see for a link to the spray zone map.

Residents are encouraged to visit the DPH website at for the latest updates

Reasons why your location may not be in the spray area?

The spray area is designed to target areas that EEE activity originates from. There are several possible reasons why your location may not be in the current spray area, including:

  • You may be located in the setback around the coastal areas of the aerial spray zone
  • You may not be located in an area that has been determined to have mosquitoes that carry EEE
  • You may be located near rare/endangered species habitat

You may also wish to contact Central MA Mosquito Control Project (CMMCP) to determine if other control options are available to you.

Please continue practicing the 5D's (Drain, DEET, Dawn/Dusk, Dress).
