Best Practices in Reducing the Cosmetic Use of Pesticides on Residential Property

The Challenge

To research the relative effectiveness of outreach approaches being used in Canada, USA and Europe for reducing the cosmetic use of pesticides on residential property, both with and without legislative intervention (e.g. pesticide by-laws.) 


Our Approach

We selected nine leading programs for in-depth review. That involved phone interviews with distributors and local retailers to verify reductions claimed, and with program planners and key stakeholders.


Collaborators

Canadian Centre for Pollution Prevention


Result

We found that some approaches have consistently been much more effective than others. It is considered a watershed piece and is being widely used as a reference by non-government organizations and all levels of government.  Download the report (1.5 MB)
