I am pleased to let you know that after an awful gypsy moth infestation this spring, a motion was successfully moved at Council on Wednesday, June 16thto ensure there are funds in the budget and will be planning for an aerial spray of BTK for affected areas in 2022. We are strongly encouraging residents to register your infestation on the new interactive map that will help inform the City for locations for spraying next year.
Given the changing cyclical nature of the gypsy moth, the City will be discussing the issue with other municipalities and experts to determine a more pro-active path going forward.
We are expecting a more detailed staff report from Forestry in the Fall of 2021. In the meantime, you can also use some of these pest control techniques, to help protect trees on your property:
