Recently our municipality has been approched to authorize the use of BT pesticide for the control of mosquitoes and black flies in parts of our territory.
We have some concerns regarding this procedure in that other wild life may also be eliminated along with the two pests previously noted. We also have concerns that if we eliminate the main food source of some of the birds in the area, what will happen to them, will they also be eliminated or will they relocate elsewhere. As well as birds we are also concerned about the well being of various butterflies and insects that are not deliberately being targeted.
Would are trying to find out the various pros and cons on the use of this means of pest control
Thank you and we hope to hear from you soon, yours truly
