Monday, September 16, 2019

Below please find information regarding the additional mosquito control treatment in Maynard this month.

·         Aerial Spraying was completed by the Massachusetts Department of Agricultural Resources in the Town of Maynard on September 14th. For more information on the aerial spraying, visit mass.gov.

·         East Middlesex Mosquito Control treated Crowe Park, Reo Park and Rockland Avenue Field on September 14th.

·         Treatment of all school fields will be completed this evening, September 16th, 2019.

·         The pesticide used in this treatment is Mavrik Perimeter, with active ingredient tau-fluvalinate EPA# 2724-478.

·         The treatment will target large vegetation surrounding the fields. This product leaves a residue that can kill mosquitoes for multiple days as they land to rest. The product is applied to the perimeter, not the fields. No precautions need to be made.
