Pests and insects

Before the City of Airdrie sprays pesticides, we will put up a sign in the area where the spraying will happen at least 24 hours in advance of and two days after the application.

The City keeps a 15 meter buffer zone around all playground structures.

All the pesticides used by the City of Airdrie are approved by HEALTH CANADA for their specific use and have gone through strict testing.


While our City does not monitor or control mosquitoes, we suggest the following preventative measures to reduce mosquito populations in your yard:

  • eliminate standing water around your home, as this is a breeding ground for mosquitoes.
  • wear protective clothing and use insect repellent when spending time outdoors during peak mosquito hours (dawn and dusk).
