Throughout the summer season, the Town of Devon conducts pest (primarily weed and insect) inspections and evaluates when and where pesticide applications are required to control noxious weeds. Pesticide applications are made in accordance with Provincial legislation. Spraying is done when the infestation of nuisance weeds exceeds acceptable standards as part of the Community Standards Bylaw and our Integrated Pest Management Plan.
Beginning in June, trained staff and contract applicators first inspect and then apply pesticides where necessary on Town land; this may include sports fields, parks, sidewalks and roadsides.
Signs will be posted on areas to be sprayed at least 24 hours prior to spraying and for at least 48 hours following the application of pesticides.
Insects on trees and woody ornamentals are sprayed when they are a threat to plant health. All pest control products and procedures used by The Town of Devon meet strict standards established by Health Canada through the Pest Control Products Act and are considered safe for these types of applications.
Employees are trained and certified by Alberta Environment and meet stringent standards in the method of application.
