ATTENTION! The Rules Have Changed

As of July 1st, 2016, Amendments to the Integrated Pest Management Regulations (IPMR) will be enforced in compliance with our license to dispense any, and all, herbicides, insecticides and pesticides.

Key Points as per IPMR and Ministry of Environment.
  • The use of pesticides in landscaped areas on private land now requires a license or certificate.
  • Landscaped areas include lawns, flower beds and ornamental trees and plants.
  • Residents can obtain a Residential Applicator Certificate (RAC) to use domestic class pesticides on their property.
  • Residents can obtain a RAC through a free online course and exam.
  • Residents can apply pesticides listed on Schedules 2 and 5 without a RAC.
  • Service companies and landlords are required to notify residents about landscape pesticide treatment.
  • Stores are required to restrict customer access to most pesticides.
  • Certified dispensers must discuss the proposed pesticide use with customers before purchase and confirm it is appropriate.
  • The changes to the IPMR do not override any municipal bylaws regarding landscape pesticide use.

If you are not a registered farm or do not hold a Pesticide Dispensing License you must acquire this certificate prior to purchase.

The certificate must be presented along with your full name, physical address and phone number.

Please visit for the course and certificate. For more information, visit for guidance documents.

Need to manage pests of another kind?

Some other garden & farm  'pests' to consider in our area are squirrel, martin, rabbit, rats, raccoons and feral cats.

Our wide variety of Live Traps are a humane solution to ridding your property of these infiltrators and free-loaders.

We do offer rental of the Raccoon Traps for a deposit & daily rate
