A Better Alternative...

SNAP's mission is to work towards environmental sustainability in Saskatchewan by promoting better understanding of the impact of pesticides (insecticides, herbicides, fungicides, etc) on health and environment, greater awareness and availability of alternatives for controlling pests, diseases and weeds, and significant reductions in pesticide use.

Regina 

 The fall herbicide program is starting on Thursday, 31 July 2014.

 Check the City of Regina Pesticide Line at 306 777-7777 to get the latest spray schedule. 

Wascana Center Authority  To be added to the notification list, phone the Wascana office at 306-522-3661. You will get weekly emails with the schedule for the upcoming week. List of the current year pesticide spraying schedules. This link also has the 2014 and 2013 schedules. It is under the news item on WCA's web site. 

I personally avoid Wascana during the spray season. But if you go and get sick, here is what you should do 

Prince Albert

Prince Albert updates their site weekly with the areas sprayed. However, they are supposed to post for 1 day after spraying and it has apparently never been done... http://citypa.ca/PesticideSpraying
