Cankerworm Spray Program to Start
City crews will be starting the cankerworm spray program this week in sections of the city where cankerworms counts are high.
Areas are determined based on monitoring programs from this spring and last fall. Monitoring has indicated that treatment will be required in 2020, and we will now move forward with providing a nuisance control cankerworm program within the City.
We plan to spray 15,000 trees with a special organic bacterial product, called Dipel, that kills the cankerworms but is harmless to pets, wildlife and humans.
Please move your car when crews are in your area spraying. Vehicles left on the street may be sprayed with the product which is easily washed off.
