Marshes along Neponset River in Hyde Park to get sprayed for mosquitoes

The Boston Public Health Commission reports crews will be spraying Fowl Meadow on the Milton line on Thursday because all the rain has meant an explosion in the number of mosquitoes in the marshy area.

The Suffolk County Mosquito Control Project is planning to use a truck mounted sprayer to spray in the area of the Neponset Valley Parkway between Meadow Road and Prescott Street. All spraying happens between dusk and 11:30pm. If it is postponed, it will be rescheduled for next week.

As with any pesticide, people should minimize their exposure and close windows during this time. If residents see a spray truck approaching, go indoors for a few minutes while the spray dissipates.

Crews will use an insecticide designed to break down quickly.
