RYE MOSQUITO CONTROL COMMISSION
POLICY REGARDING SPECIAL REQUESTS FOR ADULTICIDE SPRAYING OF TOWN ATHLETIC FIELDS

RMCC provides budgeted funds for adulticide perimeter spraying at Parsons Field for 4th of July fireworks and at Rye Junior High, Rye Elementary School, Rye Recreation Area and Parsons Field before the start of school in September and one more time if necessary.  If additional sprayings are requested for other activities, RMCC policy is that the requesting party pay Rye mosquito control contractor (presently Dragon Mosquito Control, Inc.) for such service unless the State of New Hampshire declares existence of mosquitoes carrying West Nile Virus, Eastern Equine Encephalitis or other mosquito-borne disease in the Town of Rye.  Dragon Mosquito Control, Inc. requires a minimum of one week’s notice to fulfill a request for spraying.  Any spraying is dependent on weather and availability of personnel and equipment.


ROADSIDE/WETLANDS SPRAYING: 
Emphasis on larviciding has reduced the need for routine road spraying unless there is a serious public health threat.  Residents who want to be on the No-Spray-List must either use the online registry at www.dragonmosquito.com/no-spray-registry, or send a letter with their name, address, phone number, acreage, road frontage and whether they want to be excluded from larviciding and/or adulticiding to Dragon Mosquito Control, P.O. Box 46, Stratham, NH 03885.  Inquiries may be emailed to info@dragonmosquito.com
