Protecting Trees In Our Neighborhood This Summer
The City of Ottawa’s Forestry Services team has reached to BACA to assist with protecting trees in our neighborhood this summer. Spongy moth or Lymantria dispar dispar (LDD), formerly known as Gypsy moth, is an invasive forest insect found in Ontario.
The City of Ottawa has developed a multi-faceted Response Plan for the Spongy moth (LDD). This plan includes monitoring, protection, communication, and community outreach. During its caterpillar stage, Spongy moths feed on the leaves of trees causing defoliation. In June and July, burlap can be installed around tree trunks to form a trap where caterpillars congregate. Frequent disposal of the caterpillars from the trap reduces the number of insects feeding on leaves and helps to protect trees from the infestation.
We have received a bundle of material including burlap, twine, and instructions on how to install the burlap and dispose of the caterpillars. BACA will be helping to coordinate groups of residents to help protect the tress in our local parks and will also distribute “kits” for residents to install independently on city trees on their property.
BACA will be distributing burlap kits at the Community Garage Sale at the Agincourt School parking lot on May 14th. After that, for the remainder of the month, burlap kits can be picked up at 1745 Ainsley Dr from 3pm to 6pm on Mondays and Wednesday, (special times by appointment, call Harry at 613-293-7173)
