Integrated Mosquito Management Program

  

THE CHALLENGE

Now that West Nile virus is in British Columbia, golf courses across the province are on increased alert and should consider taking additional proactive measures to minimize the threat to their clients and staff. Members especially need to be aware of this important issue and be given guidance on effective precautionary measures.
