SUDBURY (CBS) – Mosquito spraying will begin next week in a number of neighborhoods west of Boston.

The East Middlesex Mosquito Control Project will treat a number of wetland areas in Framingham, Wayland and Sudbury starting Thursday.

They’ll use a helicopter to spray pesticide that kills mosquito larvae.

The chemical used in the spray is found in most soil and considered safe for people.

The project said residents do not need to take any special precautions.

The spraying area has not been finalized. Wetlands near the following areas are under consideration.

Framingham: Angelica Drive, Callahan State Park, Fairbanks Road, and Gorman Road.

Sudbury: Crescent Lane, Hayden Circle, Hudson Road, Landham Road, Maynard Road, Meadowbrook Circle, Old Garrison Road, Pantry Brook, Powers Road, Raymond Road, Virginia Ridge, Wake Robin Road, and Willis Pond.

Wayland: Deer Run, 40 Acre Drive, Claypit Hill Road, Glezen Lane and Pod Meadow.

For further information contact the East Middlesex Mosquito Control Project at 781-899-5730.
