The Fairhaven Health Department reminds all residents to contact Bristol County Mosquito Control to ensure all properties have been properly sprayed for mosquitos.
Residents can find information at www.mass.gov/eea/bristolcounty mosquitocontrol including a tentative spray schedule for which towns are done each day. Also daily, an updated list of street names will be posted for residents to see if their location is on the schedule for the following spray day. All of this information is weather dependent and can change if needed due to mosquito populations or virus detections.
Bristol County Mosquito Control may be reached at (508) 823-5253.
To protect against the threat of EEE:
• Use bug repellant (products with DEET, Permethrin, Picaridin, or Oil of Lemon Eucalyptus)
• Wear light-colored clothing and long-sleeved shirts and long pants when outside between dusk and dawn
• Avoid outdoor activity between dusk and dawn
