Pest and Insect Control

The Town of Amherstburg does not have a pest control program in place.  If you currently have a pest control problem, please refer to the Yellow Pages.

2024 Nuisance Mosquito Program

Beginning on April 15th and continuing through to August 31st, 2024, Pestalto Environmental Health Services Inc. will apply a biological larvicide in the Amherstburg area.  This application is for the control of larva mosquitoes only and will be conducted over specific mosquito breeding sites within the boundaries of:

  • Kingsbridge Subdivision to McCurdy Drive and from the Detroit River to Meloche Rd / Concession 3 N 

View the detailed map that indicates the specific boundaries of application and affected properties for this program.

The larvicide VectoBac 1200L (PCP#21062, liquid) and VectoBac 200G (PCP# 18158, granular) may be applied to standing water if mosquito larvae are detected.  This product contains the active ingredient B.t.i. which is a naturally occurring bacterium found in soils and is very specific to mosquito larva.  This bacterium is not harmful to bees.

If your property falls within the treatment area you may be contacted by direct mail.  If you have any questions, concerns you may contact Pestalto at 1-866-648-7773 or by e-mail.
