MA announces aerial spraying for mosquitos (EEE Risk)

State Officials Announce Additional Aerial Spraying for EEE in Critical and High Risk Communities

Massachusetts Department of Agricultural Resources (MDAR) is scheduled to begin aerial spraying evening of Tuesday, September 10th and continue into next week in parts of Middlesex, Worcester, and Norfolk counties. While aerial spraying is weather and equipment dependent, above-average evening temperatures this week are likely to permit the application. The Town of Maynard is entirely within the spray zone.
