AERIAL APPLICATIONS TO CONTROL MOSQUITO LARVAE (updated 18-Apr-2017)
The East Middlesex Mosquito Control Project will be conducting a helicopter application of the biological larvicide, Bti, to control mosquito larvae over large wetland areas in Maynard.Wetlands currently being considered for this application are located near George Rd., Old Marlboro Rd. and Rockland Ave.The application will be conducted between April 19 and April 27. The Bti will be applied in a granular formulation by a helicopter flying low directly over the wetlands. Residents do not need to take any special precautions for this application.
The material to be applied Bti (Bacillus thuringiensis var. israelensis) is a natural bacterium found in soil. The EPA classifies Bti as a relatively non-toxic pesticide.Bti is considered a target selective and environmentally compatible pesticide that affects mosquito larvae and a few closely related aquatic insects in the fly family.Once applied Bti stays suspended in water for 24 to 48 hours and then biodegrades as it settles to the bottom. The product name of the Bti is VectoBac G (EPA Reg.#73049-10).

After the storm, avoid parking in the street. Stay off roads to allow plowing operations to proceed smoothly. Help dig out fire hydrants and storm drains in your neighborhood. Be aware of children playing in the streets, particularly climbing on or running out from behind large snowdrifts. Parents should remind their children to be aware of plowing operations and traffic. Clear exhaust vents from Direct Vent Gas Furnace Systems to avoid carbon monoxide poisoning. Use care around downed power lines. Assume a down wire is a live wire. As always, be sure to check in frequently on neighbors, especially the elderly.
