Ross was all set to head off to do a couple of spider sprays today, but it’s just too windy for it, especially anywhere near water.
This is part of offering responsible integrated pest management services – although the spray that is used is relatively safe for humans and pets, it is – for very good reason – absolutely ill-advised and illegal to allow it to enter the lake.
Because of that, we take great care to ensure that we don’t spray when it is too windy to control the spray near water, and we use alternative application methods when needed to safely treat docks and boathouses.
It can be a royal pain in the schedule sometimes – but it matters. Georgian Bay – and the fish and birds and wildlife that depend on it – are under quite enough stress without adding to it.
