The Town of Ashland is a Member Community of the Central Mass Mosquito Control Project (CMMCP). Membership in CMMCP offers residents access to a full program of mosquito control services. CMMCP has made great strides over the years to reduce dependency on spraying by placing greater emphasis on larval control, public education, ditch maintenance, and source reduction.
Please find the Central Mass Mosquito Control Service Manual HERE.
Spraying is done only after a request by a property owner. If mosquito-borne viruses are identified, spraying is done if it has been determined that spraying is an appropriate response.
Requests for service may be made by calling the CMMCP office at (508)393-3055 between 7:00 AM – 3:30 PM., or by using the online Request Form found HERE.
Residents may exclude their property from any part of our program at any time through the Pesticide Exclusion link HERE. Please note that this exclusion expires at the end of the calendar year, and must be renewed each year.
The public can play a major role in controlling vectors carrying West Nile Virus by eliminating all standing water in containers on their property, or from ABANDONED POOLS. Learn more about reducing the number of mosquitoes around your home and neighborhood HERE.
CMMCP also has a tire collection program in which residents may participate, please see DETAILS HERE.
