Weed control

We have a regular control program in place to control biosecurity matter across the Clarence Valley. 

Pesticide use in the Clarence Valley 

We use pesticides in public places when necessary to eliminate environmental weeds, to protect public property from pest damage and to protect the users of public places from nuisance or danger. The majority of pesticide use consists of applying herbicides for weed control and applying insecticides to manage certain insects. This occurs, on average, 6-8 times per year for sports fields, 2-5 times a year for parks and gardens and twice yearly for public thoroughfares.
