In conjunction with various ground-based methods of control, the City of Toronto will be conducting an aerial spray this spring. The spray is to help manage high levels of European gypsy moth caterpillars that are expected in certain areas of the city and prevent severe canopy damage and tree loss. The spray dates are yet to be determined but are set to occur sometime between May 16th and June 15th, 2019. The spray dates are dependent upon weather conditions at the time and insect/leaf development.
