What Are The Exceptions?

    The by-law does not apply to:
  • Excluded pesticides (See item )
  • Fruit trees & vegetable gardens
  • Noxious weeds and insects (as defined in the by-law) (See item )
  • Hard landscapes (e.g. patios & sidewalks)
  • Agricultural land and farms
  • Greenhouses
  • Mosquito control and other pests that transmit human disease
  • Pests that impact agriculture or forestry

Why is there an exception for Fruit Trees and Vegetable Gardens?
There are limits as to what City Council can regulate. It only has the authority to regulate the use of pesticides on ornamental trees, shrubs, flowers, and turf on residential properties.
