Hello SPMABC Members,
As you will all have heard, the Ministry of Environment has issued a ban on all anti-coagulant rodenticides for all of British Columbia. This ban is effective as of July 21st 2021, and will be in place for 18 months, until January 2023.
The SPMABC board is fully appreciative of the effect that this will have on our members and the industry as a whole. As such, we’d like to reassure our members that we are already in talks with the Ministry of Environment to dispute these bans, making arguments for the necessity of these baits for successful integrated pest management for our customers.
Please review the attachments on this email, which include the SPMABC statement to our members, as well as the documentation from the Ministry of Environment regarding these regulation changes.
Please don’t hesitate to contact us should you have any questions or concerns.
