Central Mass. Mosquito Control Project - Abandoned Swimming Pools

As we enter the 2022 summer season, I would like to remind you about a specific larval
control program we have 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 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. We ask that if there is an abandoned or
foreclosed property, or a potential neighborly dispute, to inform our office by e-mail at
deschamps@cmmcp.org granting us authority from your office to treat the pool.
Residents can contact us directly at (508) 393-3055 or log onto our website at
https://www.cmmcp.org and sign up under the Seasonal Updates section, look for
"Abandoned Swimming Pools".
Information on these bacterial products used by CMMCP can be found on our website
