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:
- Identification of Priority Areas;
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.
