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.
