Release of Liability for Access and Herbicide Use Agreement Form

Use this form for Noxious Weeds and Invasive Plant Species OTHER THAN Knotweed and Giant Hogweed

Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is an approach that uses a combination of pest management techniques in an organized program to suppress pest populations in effective, economical and environmentally sound ways. Pesticide application and pest control activities follow the guidelines set out by the BC’s Integrated Pest Management (IPM) Act and Regulations. B.C. Ministry of Environment’s Pesticides & Pest Management

The Invasive Species Council of BC in conjunction with the BC Government has stated that “Chemical control with a systemic herbicide is the recommended treatment strategy for certain noxious species due to their extensive root structure and aggressive growth and reproduction.” Knotweed species and Giant Hogweed fall into this category. 

Noxious weeds and other invasive plants can also be treated chemically on a site by site basis after consultation with a Coastal ISC representative. The Coastal Invasive Species Committee is able to provide a certified herbicide applicator to target and remove invasive and noxious weed species with a primary treatment during the spring/summer and a follow-up treatment using Glyphosate during the summer/fall. Often multi-year treatment is recommended.

Completion of this form does not guarantee treatment. A Coastal ISC representative will review your request and reply as soon as possible.
