Just thinking 'out loud' here..... I wonder if the mosquito dunk product
(or something similar) could be used as an alternative to aerial spraying?
excerpt from Summit site:
"Bti is a biological or a naturally occurring bacterium found in soils.
(Bti is short for *Bacillus thuringiensis* subspecies *israelensis*.) It
contains spores that produce toxins that specifically target and only
affect the larvae of the mosquito, blackfly and fungus gnat.
EPA has registered five different strains of Bti found in 48 pesticide
products that are approved for use in residential, commercial and
agricultural settings primarily for control of mosquito larvae."
