The Massachusetts Department of Public Health (MDPH) confirmed that a collection of mosquitoes from a surveillance site in the Carlisle side off town off Proctor Rd has tested positive for West Nile Virus (WNV).
Spraying in the area is planned after 8:00 pm for Thursday evening, August 15th to reduce populations of mosquitoes. A map and street listing is available on the CMMCP website.
This is the same type of spraying in targeted areas using the pesticide sumithrin that has been done in the town for resident’s requests. Residents can call CMMCP at 508-393-3055 with any questions or concerns or the Chelmsford Board of Health at 978-250-5241. Followup spraying may occur if conditions warrant it. The Central Massachusetts Mosquito Control Project will continue to test surveillance traps in the area the virus was found.
