Delta's Mosquito Control Program

Apr 27, 2016

Mosquitoes are prevalent during the summer months, especially around areas with standing water, but there are things that can be done to manage the mosquito population.

Delta has a mosquito control program in place to reduce the annoyance of mosquitoes in the community, which includes the application of a biological larvicide in known mosquito breeding areas. This biological agent targets only insects and has no effect on humans, birds, or aquatic animals.

To help control mosquito breeding areas on your property and reduce your exposure to mosquitoes, follow the 4 Ds!

For more information on Delta's Mosquito Control Program and to report areas of concern please contact Delta's Office of Climate Action and Environment at cae@delta.ca or 604-946-3253.
