City may need more pesticide for Tussock Moth
Tue, 2010-07-20 13:02.
City staffers aren’t ruling out the option of spraying for the Tussock moth again next year.
Aerial pesticides showered down on the North Glenmore region in June, attempting to rid trees of the harmful pest.
However, Urban Forestry Technician Blaine Stewart says they noticed evidence of the Tussock Moth in outlying areas, and may have to spray again next year.
“…so we definitely have our work cut out for us for the next year here, do more inspections, and hopefully go ahead with maybe another treatment next year if it doesn’t have a good enough hold on it this year.”
Stewart says they’ll be recommending to council they spray pesticide again next year.
He says if you do see signs of Tussock Moth to let the city know immediately.
