The District of Sparwood has begun its goal to reduce mosquito annoyance within the community.
The district will be using a pesticide management plan approved by the Province of B.C.
They’ve contracted Duka Environmental Services Ltd. to carry out the work
District staff say mosquitos require water and as little as 7-10 days to hatch and develop into adults.
They ask residents to do their part as well.
You should empty any water-holding containers and manage standing waters.
This could include tarped equipment/woodpiles, birdbaths or buckets.
