||In the northeastern United States the mosquito abatement programs are conducted for the vector control of Eastern equine encephalitis, to reduce the nuisance problem caused by mosquitoes, and to enhance recreation areas. Typically, these programs consist of the application of pesticides (vectoricides) and the drainage of stagnant water. The report summarizes a case study of a specific vectoricide use situation documenting the kinds and quantities used, their route from the point of initial application into the water environment, their ultimate effect on the ecosystem, and the laws and regulations which affect their use. Cape Cod was chosen for the study area.
