Integrated Pest Management Plan    

The Town of Devon (the Town) manages natural areas, including sports fields, roadway green space, decorative parks, and natural environment parks.

Each year, the Town also inspects and assumes responsibility for managing newly acquired property such as the recently annexed land. In the past, the Town has used varied pest control techniques, and Town Administration recognized the need for a formal policy and set of procedures for Town-wide use to control pests. An integrated pest management (IPM) Plan is a living document that acts as a foundation for current operational, planning, and technical pest control activities; but as a living document, it requires ongoing development and refinement

This IPM Plan is intended to have numerous functions:

  • 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

The IPM Plan provides detailed information on how to prevent and manage pests on lands within the Town.
