Mayor Orders Mosquito Spraying Across City;
HAVERHILL- Mayor James J. Fiorentini has ordered mosquito control spraying to occur overnight this Thursday, August 27 from 8PM until 5AM on Friday, August 28.
This action is being undertaken as a precautionary measure after a mosquito was identified in the neighboring Town of Merrimac as carrying Eastern Equine Encephalitis, or EEE.
The mosquito control spray area is citywide, at the recommendation of the Northeast Mosquito Control Project. The spraying will be undertaken from the back of spray trucks that will traverse every street in the City with the standard Anvil 10+10 solution.
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.
