Parks & Forestry Integrated Pest Management Program Update

Post Date:05/21/2018 10:45 AM

As part of the Rochester Parks & Forestry overall integrated pest management program, which includes multiple methods of control, we will be performing various chemical applications including fertilization, herbicide and pesticide applications.

  • Pre & Post emergent herbicide application is planned for roadway medians through the City.
  • Injection treatment of boulevard Ash Trees for Emerald Ash Borer will begin approximately June 1 and continue over the next three months.
  • Fertilization and herbicide application will occur in several areas over the next 30 day period, weather permitting. Generally areas of herbicide application will include tree well & landscape bed locations, spot spraying of noxious weeds/or invasive vegetation, and turf areas in high profile areas along rights of way. Other areas are scheduled for fertilization and herbicide applications at various sports fields and fence lines: Withers, Watson, Mcquillan, RBC, Faud, Fastpitch.
  • Several parks are now pesticide free.  Check out our website for more information:Pesticide Free Park program
