Who is doing the spraying?
Beaumont has contracted Green Oasis and Birch Fumigators and Tree Spraying, which have staff of licensed and experienced practitioners to ensure application is done effectively, safely and according to the herbicide/pesticide’s application requirements. Contractors will be encouraged to work in the early morning or late evening hours to limit traffic in the area and prevent direct exposure while spraying is taking place.
The use of chemical controls will only be permitted when other mechanical and biological control options have been exhausted. There will be 30 m buffer zones where spraying cannot occur at any time, such as around playgrounds, daycares and bodies of water. School treatment will only take place in July and August when school is out.
