Important update on EEE spraying in Wayland (updated Sept 12, 6:13pm)

Sept 13 Update: Important update on EEE spraying in Wayland 091319

Aerial spraying was done in North Wayland last night and a section (triangle shaped) that extended near the Mass Pike. The state map shows areas that were sprayed last night.  https://massnrc.org/spray-map/ Aerial spraying depends largely on weather conditions including; cloud cover, air temperatures, wind, etc.  Aerial spraying is planned to hopefully continue this evening but may be delayed due to the weather conditions and cool temperatures,  if it is done it may continue for the next few days to complete the planned areas of the commonwealth.  Maps that show planned areas of aerial spraying and completed areas are on the state website and are updated as soon possible after each evening’s application.  As a community we must wait until aerial spraying is completed in Wayland and then we can begin with spraying through East Middlesex Mosquito Control Project via truck mounted and back pack perimeter spray 24 hours after.  This website will be updated regularly as new information is received.  We encourage people to check the town health department website www.wayland.ma.us/health-department that will be updated regularly with new information on EEE spraying.

Sept 12 Update: Important update on EEE spraying in Wayland 091219

Aerial spraying was not done in Wayland last night. The state map shows that none of the East Middlesex Mosquito Control District was sprayed last night.  https://massnrc.org/spray-map/ Aerial spraying depends largely on weather conditions including; cloud cover, air temperatures, wind, etc.  Aerial spraying is planned to hopefully continue this evening but may be delayed due to the weather conditions and cool temperatures,  if it is done it may continue for the next 4 days or more to complete the planned areas of the commonwealth.  Maps that show planned areas of aerial spraying and completed areas are on the state website and are updated as soon possible after each evening’s application.  As a community we need to wait until aerial spraying is completed in Wayland and then we can begin with spraying through East Middlesex Mosquito Control Project via truck mounted and back pack perimeter spray 24 hours after.  This website will be updated regularly as new information is received.

For more information on EEE spraying please see the town health department website www.wayland.ma.us/health-department that will be updated regularly.

Sept 11 Update:

Due to weather conditions aerial spraying by the state was delayed last night and only a very small area of North Wayland was sprayed.  Depending on weather conditions,  aerial spraying is planned to continue this evening and for the next 5 or 6 days to complete the planned areas.  We are told Wayland is planned to be sprayed tonight but we will not know for sure until tomorrow, due to weather conditions and other factors that can cause delays.  Maps that show planned areas of aerial spraying and completed areas are on the state website (online here: https://massnrc.org/spray-map/MidWorNorSept2019.htm) and are updated as soon possible after each evening’s application.

Once aerial spraying is completed for Wayland we must wait 24 hours and then we can move forward with our local plans for  mosquito control via truck mounted and back pack perimeter spray.

For more information and maps that show expected spray areas and completed spray areas please go to the Health Department website; www.wayland.ma.us/health-department

    What chemicals are being sprayed?! I would rather have the choice to protect myself and my children by using deet as needed rather than have no other choice but to breathe and absorb these sprayed chemicals, which themselves could have detrimental affects to personal/environmental health short and/or long term.
