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.
