MosquitoBug Spray Reminder

Residents are reminded to use bug spray to avoid getting bitten by mosquitos, as the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (DPH) announced on August 8, 2017 that 59 communities are now at moderate risk for West Nile Virus (WNV).  These communities are within the following eight counties:  Essex, Middlesex, Norfolk, Worcester, Hampden, Hampshire, Franklin and Suffolk.  Moderate risk means mosquito activity is substantial enough that people should use personal protection to avoid being bitten by a mosquito.
