Mosquito Control Program

The City of Tawas City has contracted with Advanced Pest Management (AMP) to perform mosquito control throughout the city for 2017-2020. This will consist of treating standing water areas to control mosquito larvae, and truck fogging of city streets to control adult mosquito populations.  AMP will be using Vectobac G (Bti,.2% bacillus thuringiensis israilensis) for larviciding, and Biomist 4+4 (4% permethrin, 4% technical piperonyl butoxide) and Kontrol 4+4 (4.6% permethrin, 4.6% technical piperonyl butoxide) for adulticiding. Our regular time for spraying will be on Wednesdays after dusk. Larviciding operations (treatment of standing water) will begin mid-April. Truck ULV fogging will begin the week prior to Memorial Day, provided adult mosquito populations warrant and weather conditions are acceptable. If you have any questions, concerns, special requests, or would like to be on a notification/shutoff list, please call AMP at (877) 276-4714 or fill out the form available at  View product labels and Safety Data sheets at
