Second and final LDD moth aerial spray scheduled for Friday, June 3, 2022

Wednesday, June 01, 2022

The Town of Oakville’s Forestry Section has scheduled the last of two aerial sprays to control LDD moth infestation in our woodland for Friday morning between 5-9 a.m., subject to weather conditions.

The town will spray 33 town woodlands with a naturally occurring insecticide by low-flying helicopter to help protect our urban tree canopy from the invasive moth’s caterpillars.

Additional ground spraying may occur during the same period to target town trees adjacent to woodlands that have been identified as high-risk for LDD moth presence.

In the event of a date change or cancellation, up-to-date notification will be posted online and on the town’s Facebook and Twitter accounts.

During the spray, the woodlands and trails will be closed temporarily and reopen later the same day. There are no special requirements for residents near the spray areas.
