Integrated Pest Management Plan

Did you know the Town of Devon has an Integrated Pest Managment Plan (IPMP)? The Integrated Pest Management Plan provides detailed information on how to prevent and manage pests on lands within the Town.

This Integrated Pest Management Plan is intended to have numerous functions including:

  • to ensure public accountability for pesticide use
  • to comply with all pertinent laws, regulations, bylaws, and policies regarding the use of pesticides on lands for which the Town is responsible
  • to promote ecologically sound pest management principles, concepts, and techniques in the design and implementation of development projects on public lands
  • to develop and promote opportunities for public education and information regarding environmentally sound methods of pest management
  • to train staff who develop and implement the Town’s IPM Plan
  • to promote long-term, cost-effective management of pests

2019 Weed Control Spraying Program

As a part of our Integrated Pest Management Plan, the Town of Devon has committed to doing its part to share planned weed and pest spraying locations for each week throughout the summer months. Plans are subject to change due to the weather or other circumstances.

An inspection planned spraying areas is first carried out prior to any spraying to determine the areas with a higher concentration of weeds. The Town does not blanket spray any areas for weeds.

Updates will be provided on the maps page as needed when spraying plans are adjusted.
