How will I know when the spraying will occur?

Category: Herbicide Operations

In New Brunswick, residents are given notice via newspaper ads two weeks prior to spraying. Informational websites, including this one, http://geonb.snb.ca/herbicide/ also provide notice about spraying operations.

In New Brunswick areas scheduled for treatment are posted on a website prior to the commencement of the project (usually near the end of the first week of August). At least two weeks prior to program commencement advertisements are placed in newspapers throughout the Province. Included in the advertisements are directions to informational websites and a toll-free telephone numbers. If an individual has concerns about areas to be treated they can use these resources to get more information including the possible timing of applications.

As a final step, as the time of treatment becomes imminent normal entry points to individual treatments areas are signed to make the public aware of operations.
