Mosquito Abatement in Church Ranches
The CHRA is committed to providing environmentally friendly mosquito abatement on the common lands.
Until 2021, Prairie Environmental Services Ltd. provided mosquito abatement to the Church Ranches common lands as well as to individual residents. As a result of the pandemic, the company revised its service area, which no longer includes Bearspaw or the surrounding jurisdiction.
As soon as the CRHA Board was notified of this change, it researched many companies and got various quotes. Most companies were not equipped, or willing, to service the 70 acres of common lands.
Greentech now supplies eco-friendly mosquito abatement applications to the Church Ranches common areas. This was not a service they had offered in the past; they worked with Prairie Environmental to receive the required training and applied to the province to be properly licenced. Greentech received its licence in May and began applications shortly after. You will see green flags on the common lands where Greentech has applied mosquito abatement product.
Rocky View County now uses Greentech to treat county lands, including the ditches in Church Ranches.
