Browntail Moth Spraying Project BEGINS May 21

Browntail moth caterpillar

The Town will conduct a spraying program of street trees in the public right of way to combat the infestation of Browntail Moths. Only those areas of Town in the treatment area indicated in yellow on the map below will be affected. Originally scheduled to begin on or around May 1, the spraying program was delayed due to the cold weather this spring.  Spraying could not take place until the leaves were on the trees. Spraying has now been scheduled to begin on Monday, May 21. Click here to view the spraying schedule, updated daily.

Visit our website at for more information about the moths in general and details on the Town's spraying program. This website will be updated daily with the treatment schedule so affected residents can be prepared for when their street will be treated.
