Duka Environmental Services carries out the mosquito control program in the Yukon. They apply larvicide to temporary ponds and puddles to reduce mosquito annoyance to people.
The mosquito control program takes place between April and August.
Local community offices will be notified of aerial application dates.
Mosquito control larvicide
