Public notice of pesticide use
The City of Ottawa intends to control wild parsnip in areas city-wide along rural and suburban roadsides. Spot spraying will continue throughout the summer months as needed within the City of Ottawa. The program will use Clearview Herbicide (PCP #29752, containing aminopyralid and metsulfuron-methyl) and Gateway adjuvant (PCP# 31470, containing mineral oil – paraffin base (adjuvants), surfactant blend) under the Pest Control Products Act (Canada). Treatment for wild parsnip will commence on May 19, 2020 weather permitting, and will end on October 16, 2020. The City has retained the services of Wagar & Corput Weed Control Inc to apply the herbicide. For further information, please contact the City at 3-1-1.
