Insect Control

Dutch Elm Disease

Elm Bark Beetle Control Program 2020

Seasonally, City of Winnipeg Insect Control will treat American, Siberian and Japanese Elm trees on public and private property utilizing Pyrate® 480EC (Pyrate® 480EC Label / Pyrate® 480EC SDS) (chlorpyrifos) weather permitting. The program is intended to control elm bark beetles, the carriers of Dutch Elm Disease (DED).

Spraying of trees will occur between the hours of 5:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday to Friday, weather permitting. Treatment will take place in various locations throughout the city where DED has claimed American, Siberian and Japanese Elm trees. Also, as a preventative measure the City treats areas with large stands of elms on a two year rotational basis.

Treatment will be conducted utilizing Pyrate® 480EC (chlorpyrifos), which is sprayed from portable sprayers directly onto the lower 50 cm of the tree trunk. This product has been approved for use in Canada by Health Canada’s Pest Management Regulatory Agency, and will be used in accordance with federally approved label directions by licensed pesticide applicators.

Citizens can register for notifications using the following link: Elm Bark Beetle Control Program Notification.
