Posted: July 15, 2020


PUBLIC NOTICE

Adult Mosquito Fogging

The RM of East St. Paul will begin adult mosquito control (Mosquito Fogging) within targeted areas of the RM of East St. Paul due to the high number of nuisance mosquitoes. 

The pesticide product to be used is DeltaGard 20EW dispersed by an ultra-low volume cold aerosol fogger. 

Presuming weather conditions are conducive, the ground based fogging will occur during the late evening and early morning starting no earlier than Sunday, July 19, 2020 at 9:30pm.  If spraying is cancelled due to weather conditions, it will be carried out as soon as weather permits spraying to be continued. 

The area targeted for spraying includes the entire Municipality.  Spraying may include private roadways and field roads that are located to the rear of dwellings or sub-divisions. 

People who wish to minimize their exposure to DeltaGard 20EW can take the following precautions:
  • Close all windows and doors
  • Stay away from working trucks while spraying is underway
  • Fans and air conditioners should be turned off or set at exhaust
  • Remove clothes and children’s toys from outdoor areas
  • Wash any household items or toys left outside before using them and ensure fruits and vegetables are washed 

Continue to protect yourself from mosquitoes by using appropriate mosquito repellent, reducing time spent outdoors when mosquitoes are active, especially between dusk and dawn, wear light colored, long sleeved, loose fitting clothing, and remove standing water.

If you wish to file an objection to the use of chemical pesticide applications adjacent to your property, you are required to file your objection in writing addressed to the RM of East St. Paul, 2801 Gateway Rd., East St. Paul, MB R2E 0J6. 

For further information about the spraying schedule, you can contact the RM of East St. Paul at 204-668-8336 or email operations@eaststpaul.com.
