Gypsy Moth Caterpillar Spraying Next Steps Preparing for Spring 2021
In our previous communication, we shared information about spraying Gypsy Moth caterpillars. This is conducted in the spring with a second spray a few weeks later.
We have set up a survey, reachable by clicking this link, to determine what you, the cottagers, are considering to battle this invasive species. Please complete the survey by September 30th (but it will remain open after that if you forget or are delayed.) The information from this survey will be shared with Paul Zimmer. We are extending this survey to surrounding lakes, so please identify your lake and property when responding to the survey.
We are hoping that by consolidating our intent and providing it to zimmerair.com, Paul Zimmer’s spraying company, we can provide a big picture view of how much spraying will take place.This is NOT a commitment that you will spray, but rather will aid Paul in reaching out to you for further consultation. Your final decision is between you and Paul.
As a reminder, these are the sample documents required when you commit. The contract that explains the process and the neighbour waiver.

Fireworks are prohibited in the Kawartha Signature Site Park, which includes the lake. Sparks can cause devastating forest fires. It is your responsibility to be aware of and adhere to Fire Ban publications.
