Updates to the residential spray exclusion regulations (333 CMR 13.03) will be available shortly. The process to designate your property as a "No Spray" has changed. There will no longer be a cut-off date, so please wait till the new information from the Department of Agricultural Resources is available before you make your request to your town clerk's office. There will be a new online form available through DAR for excluded property. BCMCP hopes to have information available before January 31, 2017.
The next scheduled Bristol County Mosquito Control Commission Meeting is February 23rd at 7:00am at 38R Forest Street Attleboro, MA 02703.
BCMCP will stop taking residential request for spray on Friday August 26, 2016. We will continue to make applications in areas with high trap counts and/or areas with WNV or EEE detections. Weather permitting we will suspend adultciding operations for the season on Friday September 2, 2016.
BCMCP will begin taking larviciding request in the spring, check back for a date.
To Make a Request
If you are a resident of Bristol County, you can call (508) 823-5253, fax (508) 828-1868,
or e-mail a spray request to: RequestBristolMCP@comcast.net.
Requests are taken between the hours of 8am - 2pm by phone. All towns are treated once a week, with each town usually done on a specific day. If you are having an event and would like a special spray performed on a particular date, we ask that you submit your request 2-3 weeks in advance (this applies to both residents and town/city officials). There is no charge for spraying. It is performed between the hours of 2am and sunrise. Spraying is done from roadside (the ULV aerosol will horizontally transport 300 ft).
Note: Try and get your neighbors involved. The more requests that we receive from a particular street or neighborhood, the more effective the treatment will be.
