Parks Pest Management & Pesticide Use

Scheduled Pesticide Applications

The table below includes a schedule of upcoming pesticide and herbicide applications. *The list is updated to provide at least 24-hour notice for applications. Public Works staff make every effort to notify the community on this webpage when a pesticide application is scheduled in a public area. Dates of applications may change or be cancelled due to weather; also, occasional emergency applications may be needed. 

On-site Signage Procedures
  • White prenotification signs are placed in advance of an application to playing fields, managed turf and treatments within 25 feet of a stream or creek.  The signs list the planned application date, product and the reason for the application.
  • Yellow signs are installed at the site at the time of application and remain in place at least 48 hours following the pesticide application. For more information, call the phone number listed on the back of the sign.

Please contact the Department of Public Works if you have any questions at 860-561-8100.
