What Is the Nuisance Mosquito Program?
This program has two components, a mosquito control program and an independent research project. The mosquito control program is designed to reduce mosquito population by at least 80% in the Kanata North community. To accomplish this, Bti (Bacillus Thuringiensis Israelensis) is applied either through ground or aerial operations throughout the community. The second independent component is the research project. This will be carried out by the University of Ottawa to study the possible environmental effects that may be caused by the application of these substances.
