Re: Notification of Late Evening Aerosol Applications (Ultra Low Volume – ULV)


Please be advised that the Norfolk County Mosquito Control District will begin the 2018 late evening ULV aerosol applications on or about May 29, weather permitting, with potential small area treatments for early hot spots should evening temperatures allow from May 14 through May 25, 2018.
May 29 through September 28, 2018 - Adulticide aerosol (ULV) applications.
(Conducted between sunset and midnight, Monday through Thursday)

If any resident wishes to know what day of the week spraying may be conducted in their town, they should go to the Districts website at http://www.norfolkcountymosquito.org/service-request/.  After the ULV program begins, if an individual would like to see a map of areas to be treated on the day of application, they can go to that same link, and then enter their address in the address line of the interactive map.


Please note that the ULV map will be posted on or about 3:30 p.m. the day of the scheduled application.  Residents may also contact the following number 617-582-6216 after 3:30 P.M. the day of the scheduled treatment to receive information detailing the streets/areas to be treated in the town.

The purpose of the adulticide application is to control nuisance and/or virus carrying adult mosquitoes.  The control product being used is Zenivex (EPA Reg. No. 2724-807) applied in ultra-low volume (ULV) sprayers at a rate of approximately one ounce per acre of finished spray.
