Royal Botanical Gardens conducts aerial sprays for gypsy moths
Early on Tuesday, June 1st those on campus could hear the sound of helicopters as Royal Botanical Gardens (RBG) conducts aerial sprays to mitigate a gypsy moth outbreak over their natural land properties of Cootes Paradise South Shore (5:20 a.m.) and Rock Chapel (8:30 a.m.). This is the final aerial spray in this area.
The sprays do not have any negative effects to humans, birds or bees. Learn more about the non-native invasive species of gypsy moth and the RBG strategy for mitigation here.
