Abandoned swimming pools


Entering the summer season, we have a specific larval control program to target and treat abandoned swimming pools. These areas can quickly become significant larval mosquito habitat. We have extended release, bacterial products that can reduce or eliminate the hatch of all mosquito species, some of which that could carry disease. One treatment per year is all that is necessary. Treatment of the pools is at no cost to the city/town or the resident, and the pool can later be opened if the resident so desires.

Information on these bacterial products used by CMMCP can be found on our website at http://www.cmmcp.org/pesticide-information/pages/combination-btibsph
