New StasCan report on Households and the Environment indicates the use of household chemical pesticides in 2006 was down only slightly from 1994 levels. The sole exception was Quebec, where the share of households applying lawn and garden pesticides plunged by one-half over this period. Household pesticide application was highest in the three Prairie Provinces.  Regina and Saskatoon are the 2nd and 3rd metropolitan areas with highest proportion of pesticide use with 46 % of households using pesticide.
