What is a Buffer Zone?

Residents can register with the City of Winnipeg Insect Control if they want to exempt their primary residence during a Residential Adult Nuisance Mosquito Fogging Program and/or Tree Pest Caterpillar Control Program. By registering for a Buffer Zone citizens will have a predetermined distance around or adjacent their primary residence, excluded from the City's control programs. Residents are reminded that they must re-new their Buffer Zone registration at the beginning of every season.

Buffer Zone for Residential Adult Nuisance Mosquito Fogging Program

Provides residents with a 90 m buffer zone adjacent to their primary residence. Adjacent is defined as primary residence abutting or having a common border.

Buffer Zone for Tree Pest Caterpillar Control Program

Provides residents with a 30 m buffer zone adjacent to their primary residence.

Register for a Buffer Zone around your primary residence

A 72 hour turnaround time is required for processing, so residents are encouraged to begin registering for the current season as soon as possible.
