Winnipeg Wants Mosquito Killer Approved Fast

Mosquito - Winnipeg - Manitoba - Brandon

WINNIPEG, MB – The City of Winnipeg is asking Health Canada to approve the use of DeltaGard 20EW in time for Mosquito season.

DeltaGard is considered an environmentally-friendly alternative to Malathion.

The city has formally requested that Health Canada provides expedited approval for DeltaGard, rather than going through the usual three year process.

If approved, the city will stock up on DeltaGard in preparation for the mosquito-fogging season in June.

    Has anyone considered the problem of Deltamethrin and the honey bee population?

    Seems like there are co-related issues with this pesticide that need consideration.

    I am not a fan of the mosquito, but it makes me nervous when they try to bi-pass the wait times. Aren’t those in place to make sure products are safe??? It makes me wonder what their priorities are…
