The East Middlesex Mosquito Control Project will be spraying for mosquitoes in areas in Framingham on Tuesday and Wednesday between dusk and 11:30 p.m., the East Middlesex Mosquito Control Project announced.

If spraying is postponed on either day, it will be rescheduled for Monday, July 15.

Spraying will be conducted at the following locations: On Tuesday, areas in Saxonville near Elm Street, Griffen Road, Pinewood Drive, Joseph Road, Danforth Street, School Street, and Lake Road. On Wednesday, areas near Hemenway Road, Bacon Road, Frost Street, Jean Street, Prospect Street, McAdams Road, Raleigh Road, Blackberry Lane, Woodmere Road, Knight Road, Maynard, Road, Temple Street, Mt. Wayte Avenue, Irving Street, Hollis Street, Bethany Road, and Fay Road.

The pesticide Anvil will be used. It contains sumithrin, which is classified as slightly toxic by the EPA, according to the project, but does not pose a significant risk to people or their pets due to its low toxicity and the limited amount used.

However, the project is asking that people minimize their exposure to the spray. Residents are asked to go indoors and close street-facing windows if they see a spray truck approaching, and to remain inside for a few minutes while the spray dissipates.

For more information, call the East Middlesex Mosquito Control Project at 781-899-5730. Information on the spray schedule is available via a recorded message at 781-893-5759 and at the project website.
