September 14th, 2015 – Due to the very dry conditions over the last month and low mosquito numbers across the District, we are ending ULV spraying after Monday September 14th. We will therefore no longer take requests for ULV applications. ULV applications will resume around or after Memorial day 2016. This does not mean there are no mosquitoes or that there is no risk for disease. Please see the alert below regarding West Nile Virus.
September 3, 2015 – West Nile Virus (WNV) has been detected in mosquitoes in many communities across Massachusetts but especially in the Boston Metropolitan area. In the Norfolk County Mosquito Control District we have only detected WNV in Quincy, but it is most certainly present throughout the District even if only at very low levels. Residents should take precautions to avoid mosquito bites until mosquitoes die off and/or freezing weather kills them. This warning is most applicable to those in the northeastern more urban areas of the District and for the elderly who appear to be more susceptible to infection by WNV.
