City to begin pest, mosquito control operations in April

Pest and mosquito control operations are coming back to Grande Prairie, set to begin in April.

According to the city, pest control operations include the spraying of noxious weeds, insects, and plant diseases; however, City parks director Kase DeVries emphasizes that “all products used” are registered with Health Canada’s Pest Management Regulatory Agency.

“We are committed to ensuring the health and safety of residents through our annual pest and mosquito control operations,” she says.

Mosquito control operations will only apply to temporary standing water locations that support mosquito larvae residing within the Mosquito Control Boundary. Control operations will use a larvicide that is both “environmentally friendly and target specific.”

“Our environmentally friendly approach ensures effective and responsible management of pests within our community,” DeVries says.

Residents who have allergies to pest control products are encouraged to notify Parks Operations through AccessGP at 3-1-1.
