A Better Alternative...

SNAP's mission is to work towards environmental sustainability in Saskatchewan by promoting better understanding of the impact of pesticides (insecticides, herbicides, fungicides, etc) on health and environment, greater awareness and availability of alternatives for controlling pests, diseases and weeds, and significant reductions in pesticide use.

 The fall herbicide program is starting on Thursday, 31 July 2014.

List of the 2016 pesticide spraying schedules. This link also has the 2014 and 2013 schedules. It is under the news item on WCA's web site. WCA started spraying on the week of 27 April 2015.

I personally avoid Wascana during the spray season. But if you go and get sick, here is what you should do 

Prince Albert

t/c 953-4890 Parks.  As of 6/12/15, all sports fields were sprayed late April. Sprayed city hall in May. Been spraying 6th,15th 28th St medians on Wednesday this week. Yesterday sprayed 15th & 22nd East. Will likely only be spraying until end of June, and then certain area again in fall like athletic fields. Not spraying Kinsman.  Won't be doing again til the fall. Product: Premium freeway – killex. Says its safe w/in 24 hours. Will ask boss about putting up spray notices on city website.
