The Town of Morris would like to advise the public that it plans to undertake a control program for adult mosquitoes, through ultra low volume (ULV) fogging, across the entire Town from June 24th, 2019 through to September 30th, 2019. Fogging will take place every Monday and Thursday, between the hours of 11:00pm and 4:00am, when mosquito tolerance levels have been surpassed and weather is permitting. Dates may be changed without notice dependent on weather conditions.
The fogging program for adult mosquitoes excludes private property and will be carried out along roadways, parks, cemetery, campground and the baseball diamonds/soccer pitch. Apiaries with beehives located within less than 90 meters from the Town limits are advised they may request a buffer zone for that location.
Health Canada has concluded that the use of this product, for adult mosquito control in residential areas using ultra-low-volume application, will not pose a health concern. People who wish to further reduce their exposure to this pesticide can take additional precautions including closing all windows and doors prior to fogging, washing outdoor toys and furniture after fogging is completed, and rinsing garden products prior to consumption.
Property owners NOT wanting insecticides applied on or adjacent to their principal residence may register a buffer zone with the Town of Morris. A buffer zone of 90 meters on either side of the objectors property in the front street, side street and rear lane will be established in which fogging equipment will be turned off.
To register a buffer zone please call 204.746.2531 or visit the Town Office at 1-380 Stampede Grounds in Morris, MB. Please include your full name and civic address and contact information in the request. Buffer zone registration deadline will be Friday, June 21st, 2019.
