Pittsfield: Mosquito spray application scheduled Tuesday
To reduce the mosquito population and potential for infected mosquitoes which may carry diseases, truck-mounted mosquito spray application is scheduled for Tuesday, July 29, in the following areas:
Doyle Field; Wahconah Park and King Street; streets on the north side of Elm Street from Elmhurst Avenue to the junction of Williams Street; north side of Williams Street from Elm Street to Leona Drive, Karen Drive; south side of Pomeroy Avenue from Brunswick Street to Holmes Road; Holmes Road neighborhoods from Pomeroy Avenue south; Lakewood neighborhood east of Longview Terrace; East New Lenox Road neighborhood from Anita Drive to Joseph Drive.
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 for Wednesday due to rain.
To avoid unnecessary exposure to the product, residents may wish to close windows and doors, turn off air conditioners, stay inside, rinse produce, and remove laundry from clotheslines.
