 All locations where herbicides will be applied are in rural areas along a highway in which the public has general right of access but the application does not include any area intended for pedestrian access nor areas where the public is invited to stop such as rest areas or picnic areas.

 Noxious weeds identified along the right-of-way locations noted above will be spot sprayed using the following pesticides under the Pest Control Products Act (Canada):

  • ClearView Herbicide containing the active ingredients: Aminopyralid, present as potassium salt and Metsulfuron – methyl (Registration No. 2975)
  • Hasten NT Ultra Spray Adjuvant containing Methyl and ethyl oleate (esterified vegetable oil) (Registration No. 31760)
  • Navius Flex Herbicide, containing Metsulfuron – methyl and Aminocyclopyrachlor (Registration No: 30922)

Huron County intends to control vegetation along guiderails along all Huron County Roads within their jurisdiction using the herbicides:

  • Esplanade SC Herbicide containing the active ingredients Indaziflam Registration No.31333 under the Pest Control Products Act
  • Roundup Weathermax with Transorb 2 Technology Liquid Herbicide containing the active ingredient Glyphosate Registration NO 27487 under the Pest Control Products Act.

Anyone not wishing to have the roadside adjacent to their property treated for noxious weeds should contact Gary Pipe at the Auburn Patrol Yard 519-524-8394 ext 3421

Note:  It is the responsibility of the property owner requesting no spray to contact the above each calendar year prior to the application of weed spray.  Property owners requesting no spray will be responsible for all noxious weeds on the road allowance adjacent to their property.

We are controlling Noxious Weeds under Public Works Exception of the Cosmetic Pesticides Ban to the promotion of public health and safety.

Commencing May 24, 2022 weather permitting and ending approximately July 7, 2022.
