Mosquito Spraying in Milford, Following West Nile Discovery

Forty-nine streets in Milford will be sprayed for mosquitoes on Monday. The designated area is where a mosquito was trapped with the West Nile virus late last month.

Editor's Note: the following news release was distributed Friday by Paul Mazzuchelli, the Milford Board of Health agent.

The Central Massachusetts Mosquito Control project will be spraying areas of Milford around Godfrey Lane

This is the same type of truck-mounted spraying that occurs every summer. Streets will be sprayed after 7:30 p.m., and should conclude by midnight. [Editor's Note: see attached PDF for list of streets.]

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.

Please close street facing windows if possible, and remain inside during the application and for 15-20 minutes afterwards. Accidental exposure is not expected to cause any health concerns in most people.

Pets may be brought inside, but this type of pesticide is similar to ones used for flea and tick control. More information is available at www.cmmcp.org
