The European Gypsy Moth is a pest found throughout North America. The caterpillar eats the leaves of trees which may damage the overall health of the tree. Gypsy Moth populations have been in the City of Mississauga for many decades.

The City is now inspecting and choosing City-owned Oak trees to do Integrated Pest Management (IPM) to help manage the Gypsy Moth population in the City. IPM combines biological, physical, and chemical tools in a way that minimizes risks to health and the environment. IPM does not eradicate a particular pest entirely. Rather, it keeps pest population at a manageable level so they do not cause significant damage to trees and the tree canopy

If you experienced damage to your grass from the snow clearing operations this past winter, there is a new system in place for reporting.

Residents can call 3-1-1 now and have a Service Request created which will be forwarded to the Works Department.  Please note: Work will not commence until such a time that weather and soil conditions allow and subject to the availability of sod.
