Mission Statement
The Suffolk County Mosquito Commission (the Commission) represents the interests of Boston, Chelsea, and their residents in providing guidance and oversight to the Suffolk County Mosquito Control Project (the Project). The Commission strives to ensure that the member communities receive services that are consistent with applicable law and justified by the tenets of public health, vector control, environmental safety and fiscal responsibility. Integrated mosquito management services provided by the Project and approved by the Commission will be based on the State's Generic Environmental Impact Report on Mosquito Control in Massachusetts, the Massachusetts Arbovirus Surveillance and Response Plan and the policies of the State Reclamation and Mosquito Control Board.  The Project's integrated mosquito management plan will consist of mosquito surveillance, larval mosquito control of wetlands and catchbasins, adult mosquito control, wetlands management/ ditch maintenance and public education. 


Spray Notices  



Boston residents who would like to exclude their property from mosquito control spraying next summer should send a certified letter to the Boston City Clerk by March 1, 2014.  The letter should include your name, address, telephone number and the spray program for which the exclusion is requested.  In addition 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.
