Pesticide Use at Council's Parks and Reserves

In accordance with the Pesticides Regulation 1995 and Ashfield Council’s Pesticide Use Notification Plan, Council is notifying owner/occupiers and the general public that Council will be carrying out broad leaf pesticide spraying in the Ashfield Local Government Area.

Scheduled Sports Fields Pre-Emergence Weed Spraying and Scheduled Sports Fields Broad Spectrum Insecticide Spraying from 23 September 2013 to 22 November 2013.

Council will be carrying out Combined weed and insecticide spraying of all Sports Fields in the Ashfield Local Government Area. The following locations will be treated with a non selective herbicide and insecticide

for the control of all pre-emergence weeds and insects including African Black Beetle, Argentinian Scarab and Billbug larvae. All grassed areas of Council sports fields. Council staff will be spraying these areas with Barricade ® Selective Herbicide and Acelepryn ® Selective Insecticide mixed together. Both chemicals have a low toxicity ranking.

The exact dates for when the spraying of the fields will take place are not able to be given as the chemicals need to be watered in after application and not all fields have irrigation.

If any changes are made updates will be posted on Council’s web site, and a further notification will be made to properties where required. If you require more information or have any concerns prior to, or during the weed spraying program please call Councils Parks Department on (02)97161800 or email info@ashfield.nsw.gov.au.
