Plymouth County Mosquito Control to Conduct Aerial Spraying in Brockton

Dear BPS Families,

As you may have heard, a mosquito carrying West Nile Virus was found on the south side of the city. In the interest of public health, Plymouth County Mosquito Control will begin aerial spraying on Wednesday, September 7, between 2 a.m. and sunrise. Additional spraying will continue on Thursday, September 8, between 2 a.m. and sunrise.

The plan is to spray the entire city. No special precautions are necessary.

West Nile Virus can cause illness ranging from a mild fever to a more serious, but very rare, infection of the brain. It is spread to people through the bite of an infected mosquito.

As a precautionary measure, the Brockton Board of Health advises all Brockton residents to avoid outdoor activities between dusk and dawn, to use child-safe insect repellent, and to wear long-sleeved clothing and pants when outdoors.

Further details can be found on the Brockton Board of Health webpage.
