Mosquitoes with West Nile Virus were confirmed June 27 in a surveillance trap set June 20 by CMMCP
in the central part of town off Rt. 16 near the Mendon line. Working with the Hopedale Board of
Health, truck-mounted Ultra-Low Volume (ULV) spraying is scheduled in the area below on July 2
after sunset. Catch basins were treated in this area in this area to stop emergence of mosquito
species that can carry WNV, and additional surveillance traps have been set up to gauge population
density and determine if additional virus can be isolated.

 

It’s important to note that spraying can only reduce but not eliminate the threat of mosquito- borne illness in the areas that are sprayed. That’s why it’s important for individuals to continue
to take personal precautions against mosquito bites — both before and after any spraying is conducted.
