Integrated Pest Management
We manage pests that affect City property and the health of Edmonton's citizens.
Our Integrated Pest Management (IPM) approach identifies, monitors and, if necessary, suppresses pests using economically and environmentally sound practices.
We also offer Edmontonians a year-round insect identification service and provide least-toxic pest control advice as needed.
Submit a sample to our diagnostics lab and get advice on managing pests.

Public Notice Regarding Edmonton's Pest Management Programs
The City of Edmonton's pest management programs typically begin the first week of April (weather depending) and run until the end of October. This may include the use of pesticides (e.g. herbicides, rodenticides and insecticides) only as a last resort. Alternative techniques, products and biological controls are used whenever possible to reduce pesticide use.
All pest control products and procedures used meet strict standards established by Health Canada through the Pest Control Products Act and are considered safe for these types of applications. City of Edmonton's pesticide applicators are trained in accordance to standards of Alberta Environment and Sustainable Resource Development.
For information about opting out of pest management programs, see reducing exposure to pesticides. For daily updates of the location of pest control activities on City lands, call the Spray-line at 780-423-1378.
