This year the City is continuing to implement Integrated Pest Management (IPM) techniques to control Gypsy Moth populations in the City.  Overall, the populations remain low however, there are a few locations along streets and in woodlands in Ward 3 where the populations are predicted to be higher. In those locations, staff will be implementing IPM treatments to mitigate impacts to the urban forest canopy.
The following locations will receive IPM treatments:
  • Burnhamthorpe Road East (between Fieldgate Drive and Ponytrail Drive)
  • Pagehurst Avenue
  • Pickmere Court
  • Ponytrail Drive
  • Riverspray Crescent East
  • Applewood Hills Park
  • Garnetwood Park
Treatments are expected to begin as early as May 12, depending on the weather.
