Mayor Orders Mosquito Spraying in Response to Neighboring EEE Threat
HAVERHILL- Mayor James J. Fiorentini has ordered mosquito control spraying to occur in the northeast section of the City. This action is being undertaken as a precautionary measure after a mosquito was identified in neighboring Newton, NH as carrying Eastern Equine Encephalitis, or EEE.
The mosquito control spray area is on the northern side of Route 110 starting at the intersection of Kenoza Avenue and Route 108 and continuing to the Merrimac border. It includes Corliss Hill Road, Brandy Brow Road and the north side of Amesbury Line Road to Rocks Village.
The spraying is set to occur on Tuesday, August 7 after 9:00PM, with a rain date of Thursday August 9 after 9:00PM.
The Board of Health recommends taking common sense precautionary measures, such as using insect repellant, wearing long sleeves and long pants, and avoiding outdoor activities from dusk to dawn. In addition, residents are urged to check their properties for unattended containers of standing water which may attract mosquitoes.
