2020 Forshaga application

For 2020 we had applied for permits to suppress floodplain mosquitoes by helicopter using VectoBac G within a targeted area totaling 669,4 ha. This included 130,7 ha within Natura 2000-areas. The Swedish Environmental Protection Agency has granted permits for all target areas except the Natura 2000 area, Näs. In total the permit extends to 668.2 ha. In addition, landowners within the control area must also grant permission and therefore additional areas may need to be removed barring outstanding agreements.
