Important Public Health Notice

The Northeast Mass. Mosquito Control District will conduct a targeted adulticide treatment the evening of Thursday, September 5th to reduce mosquito populations in the Raymond Farms, Shingleville and portions of the Ryalside areas of the city. Spraying will take place at any time between 8:00 pm and midnight.

The spraying of the targeted area is in response to a positive West Nile Virus (WNV) pool/sample of mosquitoes from this section of Beverly.

Consider staying indoors when the spray truck is in the immediate area of your home, and close windows and shut off fans and air conditioners until the truck passes.

Most importantly, please remember to continue to take personal precautions against mosquitoes, such as: using insect repellent, wearing long sleeves or other protective clothing, minimizing outdoor activity between dusk and dawn, and eliminating standing water around your home.

Go to www.mass.gov/dph/wnv for additional information. Detailed information about the spray treatment (including: map of the spray area, material label, text of this Swift Phone message, WNV Public Health Fact Sheet and FAQ about spraying) are available for viewing on the City’s webpage at www.beverlyma.gov and at the Beverly Health Department located in the Beverly Senior Center, 90 Colon St.
