MA Organic Operations: Aerial Mosquito Control Summer 2019

Current information about Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE) and aerial mosquito control spraying in areas at risk.

State officials announce plans to conduct aerial spraying for mosquitoes in sections of southeastern Massachusetts, including specific areas of Bristol and Plymouth counties which are anticipated to begin August 8 and continue over several evenings. However, the ability to spray is weather dependent and the schedule may change.

Organic farms are supposed to be excluded from the spraying. However, if farmers feel that they get sprayed accidentally, they should notify Baystate immediately.
