Kanata North Nuisance Mosquito Control Program

The Kanata North Nuisance Mosquito Control Program targets mosquito larva found in wetlands to prevent hatching. The small, localized, program is approved for four years from 2024 to 2027.

From April to September, GDG Canada will apply control agents to the treatment area in and around Kanata North. The control agents are Bacillus Thuringiensis Israelensis (Bti) and Bacillus sphaericus (Bs), which are a bacteria found naturally in soils. No other control agents will be used. The Health Canada Regulatory Agency has approved both agents and has found them to have no effects on humans, birds, fish, animals or other insects. Bti and Bs are effective bacteria that destroy the stomachs of mosquito larvae that hatch in water.

GDG Environment has been monitoring mosquito larvae since early April and has started treatment of areas in Kanata North.

As the season progresses, we will continually update this page with weekly Mosquito Program Reports. If you have any questions or concerns during the season, you can contact infomoustique@gdg.ca or phone 1-844-840-8700. Be sure to include your address and contact information.
