Surrey gypsy moth aerial spray treatment begins May 5
The provincial government begins aerial spraying of north Surrey May 5th. This is when the agent orange treatment begins. It doesn't all happen on one day. We also need to address some of the bold faced lies the provincial government is making about BTK. This is not healthy for humans and it is not good for the environment. It is a waste of tax dollars.
BTK effects all caterpillars not just gypsy moths and effects every species of animals that eats caterpillars or moths. That means it eradicates all the butterflies and harms all the songbirds that feed their babies caterpillars. Dr R.B. Philp wrote a paper on the adverse effects of BTK.
The individual gypsy moth traps are much more effective and far less invasive.
