Weed & Pest Control
Strategies for keeping invasive species at bay
The County helps protect agricultural productivity by controlling native and introduced pests (animals, birds, insects, plants or diseases which negatively impacts agricultural production). Landowners also play a role in controlling pests on their properties.
While all agricultural and nuisance pests are targeted by Agricultural Services for control in the County, the main pests of concern are Clubroot of Canola, Wild Boar and Fusarium head blight (Fusarium Graminearum).
