Mosquito Fight in Fort Langley

The Township of Langley, in co-operation with Metro Vancouver Parks is trying to minimize the amounts of slaps, hits and scratching locals will do this year.

Starting last week, the Township and Metro Parks began conducting periodic aerial larvicide treatments via helicopter over mosquito breeding sites located on Brae and McMillan Islands in Fort Langley. The Township’s nuisance mosquito control contractor, Culex Environmental, is carrying out the aerial treatments.

One year, Metro Parks decided not to use larvicide treatments on Brae Island and an outbreak of mosquitoes nearly shut down camping that summer. It hurt tourism in the village, as everyone was being attacked by swarms of the blood sucking insects. The Mosquito Control Hotline is 604-872-1912.
