Herbicidal Spraying - Important Considerations

  • Will waterways be affected by the use of herbicides?
  • What other plant species will be effected by the herbicide?
  • Size and density of the infestation
  • Will residual herbicide affect tree roots?
  • Potential harm to protected wildlife

Herbicidal applications on done by spraying, leaf wipe or stem injection. The precise method depends on the situation and location of the target species. Combined methods will often be used.This will ensure that the correct herbicide is chosen for the job, at the right strength, applied correctly and at the most effective time of year. Our staff are fully trained to use only approved products in the manner specified, conforming completely to legal obligations.

Apart from being appropriately qualified, our staff are fully aware of all legislation that applies to the use of pesticides. This includes COSHH, the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health, the Code of Practice for Using Plant Protection Products 2006 and The Environment Act amongst others.

Written permission from the Environment Agency must be obtained for herbicide use within 5 metres of a watercourse.

Important: Allowing a contractor to use weed killer, herbicides or pesticides on your property without NPTC Pesticide Certification may lead to prosecution with unlimited fines by the Environment Agency - this applies to both YOU and your contractor.
