Pesticide Ban Update

Category: Canada, Products, Herbicide 

The movement to ban harmful cosmetic pesticides is gaining momentum in Canada. Quebec, Ontario, and Nova Scotia already have bans in place, while Newfoundland, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, Manitoba, and British Columbia are either implementing or discussing the legislation of cosmetic pesticide bans. Many communities have taken it upon themselves to curtail the cosmetic use of pesticides through local bylaw enforcement and restrictions on pesticide sales. The latest development in the ongoing discussion of pesticide bans is a proposal to table ban legislation in Manitoba as early as the end of 2012.

The lawn care industry, the major consumer of cosmetic pesticides, has to brace itself for these restrictions by looking to alternative products that are acceptable under the strictures of these bans. Neudorff has received inquiries regarding the suitability of Fiesta Lawn Weed Killer® and Finalsan® Grass and Weed Killer to step in and fill the gaps left by the products that have been banned.

With the implementation of the cosmetic pesticide ban in Ontario, lawn care companies had very few options left to them. They resorted to pulling weeds and to biopesticides that did not fit well into their standard practice. When Fiesta Lawn Weed Killer® was introduced in 2010, the industry finally had a product that was effective and fit into the way they traditionally treated for weeds. Fiesta Lawn Weed Killer® is now a widely used herbicide in the lawn care industry in Ontario.
