Shrewsbury BOH accepting pesticide exclusion requests

Shrewsbury – The Shrewsbury Board of Health will be accepting pesticide exclusion requests submitted by residents wishing to exclude their property from public area-wide applications through Monday, March 31. The pesticide application programs affected by this exclusion program are those for the gypsy moth and the mosquito.

Designations for exclusions may be made by supplying the Shrewsbury Board of Health a certified letter providing the name, address and telephone number (if any), names of all abutters, and defining programs from which exclusion is requested. Designations shall be effective from April 1, 2013 to March 31, 2014.
