Framingham residents who want to exclude their property from mosquito control spraying this summer should send a certified letter to the Framingham town clerk by March 1.
Framingham is one of over two dozen municipalities that take part in the East Middlesex Mosquito Control Project, which sprays towns each summer against mosquitoes. Spraying is usually scheduled in the summer, when mosquito levels peak.
The letter of exclusion should include the resident's name, address, telephone number and the spray program for which the exclusion is requested. Additionally, the boundaries of the property should be marked every 50 feet by orange surveyors tape or other appropriate means. The type of markings should be stated in the certified letter.
Questions on pesticide applications by the East Middlesex Mosquito Control Project or the process to exclude properties from spraying can be answered by calling 781-899-5730.
