The Berkshire County Mosquito Control Project has scheduled a truck-mounted mosquito spray application for Monday, Sept. 2, on roads within a one mile radius of Lillybrook Road on outer West Street.
A map of scheduled spray areas is available on the City of Pittsfield website at www.cityofpittsfield.org.
All spray applications will take place between the hours of 10 p.m. and 7 a.m. Spraying may be rescheduled to Tuesday evening due to rain.
Residents may want to take the following steps to avoid unnecessary exposure to the product: Close windows and doors and turn off air conditioners on the street side of property; stay inside during application period; rinse produce with water; remove laundry from clotheslines.
Residents may request no-spraying on their property by calling the BCMCP or sending a request via email including name and property address, firstname.lastname@example.org.
