Daily tracking of pest management spraying activities in the city helps to manage a variety of pest types.

2021 Pest Management Programs 

The City of Edmonton’s seasonal pest management programs are currently closed for the season, and will begin once again on April 1 (weather-depending) and will run until the end of October. These programs help control mosquitoes in Edmonton and surrounding counties, noxious and prohibited noxious weeds and pests, and weeds causing structural damage to parks, roadways, buildings and other infrastructure.  

The City of Edmonton utilizes its Integrated Pest Management (IPM) strategies to focus on minimizing the use of pesticides while ensuring the maximum effectiveness of pest management programs. Some pesticide usage, though, will be required to ensure maximum effectiveness.

All pest control products and procedures the City of Edmonton uses meet strict standards established by Health Canada through the Pest Control Products Act. The City of Edmonton’s pesticide applicators are trained to the required standards of Alberta Environment and Parks.
