REVISED: Mosquito Fogging - AUGUST 30, 2015

Posted: August 28, 2015


PUBLIC NOTICE - REVISED

The City of Winnipeg was unable to complete our mosquito fogging last night (Aug. 30) due to weather.  It is scheduled for tonight (Aug. 31), weather permitting.

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

The pesticide product to be used is Malathion 95 ULV 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 then SUNDAY, AUGUST 30 at 9:30 pm. 

The area targeted for spraying includes the entire Municipality.

Spraying is roadside.

If spraying is cancelled due to weather conditions, it will be carried out as soon as weather permits spraying to be continued.

 

WHAT YOU CAN DO:

People who wish to minimize their exposure to Malathion 95 ULV can take the following precautions: 

• Close all windows and doors.
• Stay away from working trucks while spraying is underway.
• Exhaust fans and HRV units should be shut off for the night.
• 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, reduce time spent outdoors when mosquitoes are active, especially between dusk and dawn, wear light coloured, long sleeved, loose fitting clothing and remove standing water.

If you wish to file and 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, 3021 Birds Hill Road, East St. Paul, MB R2E1A7 or Fax 204-667-8312.
