Mosquito Control Program 2020- Public Notice

Mosquito Control

The Mosquito Control program begins the week of April 13, 2020 in the Town of Plaistow. Crews from Dragon Mosquito Control, Inc. will be checking swamps, marshes, woodland pools, ditches, storm drains and other shallow, stagnant water for mosquito larvae. When mosquitoes are found, the following insecticides may be used:
VectoBac (Bacillus thuringiensis israelensis 2.8%)
Natular (spinosad 2.5%)
Fourstar MBG (Bacillus thuringiensis israelensis 3.0% & Bacillus sphaericus 3.0%)
VectoMax FG (Bacillus thuringiensis israelensis 4.5% & Bacillus sphaericus 2.7%)
CocoBear MLO (mineral oil 10%)
BVA 2 Mosquito Larvicide Oil (mineral oil 97%)
It is not possible to predict if emergency spraying for Eastern Equine Encephalitis, Jamestown Canyon Virus or West Nile Virus will be necessary. The spray schedule is based upon mosquito surveillance data, disease test results and weather conditions. Disease activity occurs later in the summer. A decision to conduct emergency spraying would be made in consultation with Plaistow Town Officials. Further communication will be given if this action is required.
