Weather conditions have pushed this application from April 21 – 29 to April 29 – May 8.
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 evaluated for this application are located near George Rd., Old Marlboro Rd. and Rockland Ave.
The application will be conducted between April 29 and May 8. 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 GS (EPA Reg. #73049-10).

Update: As of 13-May the Planning Board has resumed public hearings.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Chairs of the Conservation Commission
and the Planning Board have determined all public hearings would be continued until the first scheduled Board/Committee meeting after the Governor’s State of Emergency, declared on March 10, 2020, is lifted. The Chairs have concluded that due to the inability to ensure members of the public would be able to participate in “virtually hosted” public hearings, continuances are warranted. This is consistent with the provisions of Chapter 53 of the Acts of 2020 §17 and time periods applicable to applications will be tolled in accordance with the provisions of the Act.
If you have further questions please contact via email at firstname.lastname@example.org (Town Planner) or email@example.com (Conservation Agent/Assistant Planner) or leave a voicemail at 978-897-1302.
We appreciate your patience in this most unusual and ever evolving situation.
Due to the Governors recent extension of social distancing for public health and safety, the department has decided to cancel the April 11th’s recycle center drop off day. All other dates are subject to change as the department deems necessary. Public works is an essential function to the day-to-day operations of the town, we do not want to put our residents or our staff at risk of infection which could compromise the necessary work that needs to continue to function through these unprecedented times. Thank you for your patience and cooperation.
