The Town of Oakville’s Forestry Section has received notice from its consultant that the first gypsy moth and cankerworm aerial spray will take place Friday morning, subject to weather conditions.

The town will spray 21 town woodlands with a safe and naturally occurring insecticide by low-flying helicopter to help control the insect infestation.

Review the spray area.

During the spray, the town will implement a traffic plan that requires temporary road and transit delays near the spray areas. Road and transit delays are expected to last less than five minutes, between 5 and 8 a.m. Woodland trails will also be closed temporarily and reopen later the same day.
