Ipswich residents who want their property excluded from the application of pesticides during mosquito season are being asked to contact the town offices before March 1. In a press release, Colleen Fermon, director of public health, noted that in order to be designated for exclusion, a property owner must supply the town clerk with a certified letter providing the name, address, telephone number, and names of abutters, and also defining the programs from which the exclusion is requested. The release stated that exclusion designations received after the March 1 deadline will not be honored by the Northeast Massachusetts Mosquito Control and Wetlands Management District, which manages the mosquito control program.
