Mosquito Control Best Management Practice Plan
The Northeast Massachusetts Mosquito Control and Wetlands Management District (NEMMC) has thirty-two subscribing municipalities, including Ipswich. Their mosquito control and surveillance program runs from the middle of the spring until the beginning of the fall, the time of the year most people are engaged in extensive outdoor activities.
NEMMC creates a Vector Management Plan (VMP) for the Mosquito Control District and a Best Management Practice Plan (BMP) for each of the municipalitieswithin its District annually. District control efforts focus primarily on adult mosquito surveillance, virus testing and preemptive virus intervention strategies.
The Mosquito Control Best Management Practice Plan for Ipswich was reviewed and approved by the Board of Health at their May 6, 2013 meeting. Every year the control measures in Ipswich’s BMP include aerial salt marsh larviciding, catch basin treatments and adulticiding.
