Wildlife/Nature

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, children and even adults. They can jump fences, and can attack small animals and humans. Keep your distance!

Scams and Neighbourhood Crime

Scams and Neighbourhood Crime

Recently there has been a spate of Porch Piracy in the LPRO neighbourhood. Two such incidents occurred on the same day at homes on Craighurst and on Lytton. In one case a sealed delivery box was broker into. Video footage from both locations indicates that the same person committed both thefts. Police are investigating.

Residents might want to consider having purchases delivered to a business address or authorized pick-up hub, rather than to their home.

Remember: if you see a suspected thief, please do not approach. Call 911 instead.

Bike Thefts are not new to Lytton Park but they seem to be on the rise, probably due in part to the high demand for bikes since the pandemic began. Reports include thieves entering through a gate to steal bikes from a garage or shed located at the end of a driveway or in a backyard. Residents should consider locking their garages and sheds, and possibly securing their bikes even when they are inside a locked garage or shed.

Toronto residents can register their bikes with Toronto Police Service (TPS). When a stolen bike is recovered TPS checks the registry. https://bike.torontopolice.on.ca/BicycleRegistry/
