Mosquito control gets underway

Control of mosquito larvicide in catch basins located on the campus will begin this Saturday (June 25).

The application of the Ontario Ministry of Environment approved Altosid Pellets Mosquito Growth Regulator (PCP No. 21809) will be applied by Abel Pest Control of London, under permit number 4404-8HFNCR.

“I expect this contract will require three to four applications, with each treatment providing control for approximately 30 days,” says Jim Galbraith, Supervisor of Grounds Maintenance and Waste Management.

Any questions regarding this program should be directed to Galbraith at extension 88717, or by e-mail at
