Nuisance Mosquito Fogging Buffer Zone Registrations Now Being Accepted

May 21, 2015

Brandon, MB – The City of Brandon’s Community Services Department wishes to advise members of the public that they may apply IN PERSON OR IN WRITING to have a 90-metre buffer zone applied to their property during a nuisance mosquito fogging event. By registering for a buffer zone, citizens will have their property and an area of 90 metres on either side of their property in the front street, side street, and rear lane excluded from the Nuisance Mosquito Fogging Program.

Residents are reminded that they must renew their buffer zone registration at the beginning of every season. A resident’s name, address, telephone number and proof of occupancy are all required for a buffer zone application to be accepted. A medical certificate is NOT required to request a nuisance mosquito buffer zone. However, should the Province of Manitoba issue the City of Brandon a health order to spray for West Nile virus, all buffer zones will not apply.

The City of Brandon Nuisance Mosquito Buffer Zone application form is available for download by visiting or can be picked up and returned to the City of Brandon Community Services Complex, 2020 McGregor Avenue. More information on the buffer zone registration process can be obtained by calling the City of Brandon Community Services Department at 204-729-2148.

In terms of 2015 mosquito surveillance, City of Brandon Community Services Department staff have already been larviciding as weather permits over the past few weeks. Crews are reporting plenty of larvae activity and anticipate mosquito populations to emerge in the coming weeks. 
A short informational video about the City of Brandon’s larviciding program can be viewed on the City of Brandon YouTube channel.

More information about the City of Brandon’s Mosquito Surveillance and Control Program is available on the City of Brandon website here.
