Mosquito Control Program Update - Scotch Creek/Lee Creek

Tuesday, May 29, 2018

On May 25, 2018, the CSRD received authorization from BC Parks to conduct mosquito nuisance control within Shuswap Lake Provincial Park in Scotch Creek.  The mosquito nuisance control program has been authorized for the 2018 season only. 

As a result, the CSRD has now initiated habitat monitoring and treatment works within Shuswap Lake Provincial Park concurrently with the ongoing mosquito nuisance control program in the Scotch Creek/Lee Creek area.

The CSRD’s request to control nuisance mosquitos within Tsútswecw Provincial Park (Roderick Haig-Brown Provincial Park) for 2018 was not authorized by BC Parks.  Consequently the CSRD expects higher levels of nuisance mosquitos within and surrounding Tsútswecw (Roderick Haig-Brown) Provincial Park.

More information on the CSRD’s mosquito control program can be found on the CSRD website at www.csrd.bc.ca/services/mosquito-control.
