OCFDC is no longer accepting applications for the 2022 spray program.

If you are interested in tackling your own spraying, Brooke Briggs has kindly provided us with suppliers of BTK liquid solution:

      Canadian Tire 100ml. (makes 33 litres) – $ 12.99 (hard to keep in stock)

     Home Hardware 100ml. – $ 13.99 (not always in stock, go online and quote item # 5046595 to locate who has it.

     Amazon 100ml. – $ 12.99 + shipping or free if order over $ 35.00.

      Tanglefoot tree wrap kit also available @ $ 30.00 to 35.99-supposedly very effective.

     Dodds & Irwin 100ml.  – Phoned 3X, left messages, no reply.

     Peavey Mart – does not carry it but does have lots of burlap wrap.

Sprayers available from 1-5 gallons, which will reach 30′ or so, run from $10.99 – 39.00.

The Ministry of Northern Development, Mines, Natural Resources and Forestry (NDMNRF) has posted the 2022 LDD/Gypsy Moth defoliation forecast map on their LDD web page (pasted below).
