Mosquito Season Has Arrived!

The Bristol County Mosquito Control Project has notified us regarding the aerial applications for 2018, (actual start time will be announced at a later date) which will be between the hours of 4:00am and 9:00pm as conditions permit. 

Applications will be conducted over specific large wetlands in the Town in order to reduce the number of mosquito larvae. 

The insecticides to be used will be one or more of the following:  the granular formulation of Bti (Bacillus thuringiensis israelensis), trade name VectoBac G (EPA Reg. #73049-10), Bacillus sphaericus, trade name VectoLex WDG EPA (Reg. #73049-57) the combination of Bti and Bacillus sphaericus, trade name VectgoMax CG (EPA Reg. #73049-429) or VectoBac 12AS (EPA Reg. #73049-38).
