Definition of a NATURAL pest control product ―
A NATURAL pest control product has an active ingredient that is a biochemical or some other NATURALLY-OCCURRING SUBSTANCE, as opposed to a synthetic pest control product, in which the active ingredient has been manufactured.
Definition of an ORGANIC pest control product ―
A pest control which is defined as ORGANIC must have the active ingredient that is derived from the REMAINS OF ANIMALS, BIRDS, HUMANS, MARINE CREATURES, OR PLANTS.
It must not be assumed that NATURAL or ORGANIC pest control products are safer or more environmentally-friendly.
Fiesta is a so-called Green Alternative Pesticide that somehow replaces three-way phenoxy turf herbicides, such as Killex, which contains the active ingredient 2,4-D.
Fiesta contains 4.43 per cent iron ( Fe ) present as FeHEDTA, a chelated iron.
It is NOT a NATURAL or an ORGANIC product .
Lawn care companies that have employed these inaccurate terms in their advertising campaigns have been instructed by Health Canada to DESIST.
Moreover, problems with supply and cost have forced lawn care companies to UNWISELY SELECT THE LOWEST RECOMMENDED RATE OF APPLICATION, WHICH IS LESS EFFECTIVE.
Unfortunately, adequate broad-leaved weed control with Fiesta Herbicide is only achieved with an EXORBITANT 6 TO 8 REPEAT APPLICATIONS PER SEASON, or more, well beyond the label recommendation of 4 APPLICATIONS.
Some companies have even resorted to the use of FERTILIZER-GRADE sources of iron, which is ILLEGAL under Federal Law.
And of course, companies who advertise Fiesta as a NATURAL or ORGANIC product are also VIOLATING Federal Law.
Say “No” To Weeds This Summer

Weeds are the bane of every homeowner’s existence. While chemicals may seem like the ideal solution, they can leach into vegetable and flower gardens, runoff and trickle into groundwater supplies, and let’s not forget they’re now illegal in Ontario. Nutri-Lawn Ottawa Sprinkler Systems believes that there are better ways to deal with weeds than to suffocate them with toxic chemicals. What’s more, in most cases these new methods are more effective and less expensive than chemical treatments. Turn your lawn into a weed-free sanctuary with these lawn care strategies from Nutri-Lawn’s Ottawa sprinkler experts.
Use ORGANIC Herbicides for NATURAL Weed Control
Despite the Ontario pesticide ban, the lawn care technicians at Nutri-Lawn Ottawa Sprinkler Systems can still provide you with environmentally friendly treatments to protect your lawn from weedy residents.
On such treatment is our FIESTA Weed Control, an ORGANIC herbicide that is child and pet friendly.
Observers are suggesting that Nutri-Lawn reconsider its advertising program.
Clearly, advertising Fiesta as a NATURAL or ORGANIC product is VIOLATING Federal Law.
If Nutri-Lawn can’t be a good example, then it will just have to serve as a horrible warning.

Government Definition of Organic and Natural
The Government of Canada has defined and interpreted the terms NATURAL or ORGANIC.
For example, there is information contained in the Fertilizers Act and Regulations that is applicable to fertilizers containing ORGANIC or NATURAL materials.
This information may be used as guidelines for pest control products.
The government defines ORGANIC MATTER as the PARTIALLY HUMIFIED REMAINS OF ANIMALS AND PLANTS.
For this reason, only products that are solely derived from organic matter may be identified or described as ORGANIC.
If the product contains at least 15 per cent organic matter however, it may be described as ORGANIC-BASED.
The same rationale described for ORGANIC applies to the term NATURAL.
Materials that are directly MINED FROM MINERAL DEPOSITS, and only subjected to physical processes such as crushing and drying, may be described as DERIVED FROM NATURALLY OCCURRING SOURCES/DEPOSITS.

Nutri-Lawn is proud to be one of the first companies to have tested the product and now have this service into production throughout Ontario with plans for other markets this summer.
