Pest Management Plans and Pesticide Use Permits provide direction and support for the use of integrated pest management activities to control invasive species under the Integrated Pest Management Act and Regulation.
Pest Management Plans (PMPs) outline an integrated pest management approach for the control of invasive plants on provincial public land, and includes prevention strategies, manual/mechanical treatment methods, biological and cultural control methods, and chemical control methods.
A Pesticide Use Permit (PUP) is an authorization to sell pesticides, apply pesticides to public or private land, to apply pesticides as a service, or for specified industrial uses on water.
The purpose of the Nimpkish River knotweed Pesticide Use Permit is to control Bohemian knotweed (Reynoutria x bohemica) and Japanese knotweed (Reynoutria japonica) in the area between the high water mark and in-and-adjacent to water from Vernon Camp to the Nimpkish River mouth.
The purpose of the Victoria Lake Pesticide Use Permit is to control invasive Bohemian knotweed (Reynoutria x bohemica) and Japanese knotweed (Reynoutria japonica) in the area between the high water mark and in-and-adjacent to water along the Victoria Lake shoreline in its entirety and the segment of Marble River that connects Victoria Lake to Alice Lake.
The purpose of the Spartina Pesticide Use Permits are to eliminate invasive intertidal cordgrasses (Spartina spp.) on cobble beach, salt marsh, and intertidal mudflats (at low tide) located in Boundary Bay, Robert’s Bank, Burrard Inlet, the central east coast of Vancouver Island (Comox Harbour and Baynes Sound) and the northern Gulf lslands (Hornby and Sandy Islands and the Seal Islets).
Report invasive species before they cause harm.
Invasive species are plants and animals not naturally found in B.C. that can potentially harm the province's natural environment or adversely affect people's health.
