Weed and Pest Control

Strategies to Keep Invasive Vegetation at Bay

Lac Ste. Anne County uses integrated pest management systems to control and eradicate noxious and prohibited noxious weeds. By putting grazing, mowing and herbicide pressure on these invasive species, we aim to maintain and enhance the level of native vegetation we have and, give crops the advantage they need to prosper and minimize weed establishment.

Pest Control Services

Inspections done annually on crops help to control the establishment and spread of various crop diseases (like clubroot), and crop pests (like high grasshopper populations). Our goal is to educate producers on these topics and build strong management plans should disease or pests threaten yields.
