LOST CAT RETURNED HOME!
A SCOKE resident has reported that their 10 month old cat, Yumosh, has come home.
Every year on the May long weekend, there is a fireworks display on Kimbark Blvd. between Caribou and Otter. Neighbours contribute with money (which is put towards buying fireworks) or fireworks as well as snacks for the kids. Everyone is welcome! Unfortunately this year – 2021 – the event is cancelled due to Covid.
We have had a number of Porch Pirate thefts in the SCOKE area and vicinity. If you have video footage that might assist in catching the perpetrators it can be submitted to Toronto Police.
Residents have been receiving letters regarding illegal driveway widening. They are asking for a fine of $500 in Bitcoin. This is a scam.
The Box Tree Moth is an invasive insect that has appeared this spring on boxwood hedges in Lytton Park. Hatched larvae feed on the boxwood, ravaging the leaves and causing defoliation and dieback. They can be a significant pest if left unmanaged.
Larvae are light green in colour with characteristic black stripes, white dots and a shiny black head. Treat active larval stages with registered insecticides. 3-5 days after application, check to ensure that all the larvae have been killed. Re-treat if necessary. Continue to monitor plants for signs of active larval stages, especially during the following periods: May 30-June 15, July 15-August 10, September 1-15. If you see this invasive pest, you should report it to: http://inspection.gc.ca/pests
Coyotes continue to appear in our neighbourhood. They pose a threat to dogs, cats and even small children. They can jump fences, and can attack small animals and humans. Keep your distance!
