Malathion Applications Underway for Mosquito Control

The Town of Kindersley is once again applying malathion in green spaces throughout Kindersley in effort to control the mosquito population. Application began Tuesday, May 15 and will continue as needed throughout the spring and summer months. Signs will be placed at treated areas to notify visitors but residents should be aware that all green spaces will be treated this week.

Malathion is an outdoor insecticide that can be applied topically and has shown to be effective in eradicating mosquitos and ticks. 

Malathion will be applied to all Kindersley parks, including the Senses Unleashed Dog Park, Baker Park and Fat Cats Spray Pad, ball diamonds and soccer fields, and Motherwell Community Walking Trail.

In addition to malathion, Town employees will continue the regular practice of treating standing water throughout the Kindersley and immediate perimeter with Vectobac, which controls and eradicates mosquitos at the larvae stage. This has been a staple of Kindersley’s mosquito control program since 2010.
