About the Program

Helicopter for Aerial Applications
Helicopter for Aerial Applications

CMMCP has an aerial larval program in conjunction with several member towns. The towns pay for the larvicide product and contractor as a separate appropriation, and CMMCP provides surveillance and labor.  The threshold for aerial larval control is at least 1+ per 10 dips, with a minimum of 1 dip station per 250 acres.

This program is dependent on many factors, including but not limited to:

  • Budget;
  • Identification of Priority Areas;
  • Acreage.

CMMCP will record pre- and post larval populations to determine the extent of the application and its efficacy. A report with this information is generated each year and given to the towns participating in the program.
