City to Host Aerial Spray Information Open Houses

This spring, the City of Mississauga is conducting an aerial spray. The spray will lower fall cankerworm and gypsy moth caterpillar populations and prevent tree loss. To prepare for the spray, the City is hosting five information open house events for those who live or work in the designated spray areas.

City staff will share details about the spray, explain how to control fall cankerworm and gypsy moth caterpillars on private property and provide an overview about the long-term health of Mississauga’s tree canopy.
