Aerial spraying for mosquito larvae
The Towns of BILLERICA and CHELMSFORD conduct helicopter applications of the biological larvicide, BTI, to control mosquito larvae usually the third week of April each year (April 21-April 26 2014). The applications will be conducted over specific large wetlands within the two communities. Applications will be done between daybreak and dusk. You may see a helicopter circling your area, particularly near wetlands.
