Warning Issued on Spurious Pesticide Product
Health Canada issued a warning last week on a non-compliant pesticide that was found in the Canadian marketplace. The pest control product labelled as “Sure Killer Instant Pressurized Residual Insecticide Spray” resembles other registered pesticides but does not have the mandatory registration number under Pest Control Products Act. The spurious product also lacks contact information or the name of the company on its label. Health Canada’s division, called the Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA), regulates the sale and use of pesticides in Canada.  Registered pesticides are those that have been subject to a stringent scientific review before they are approved for sale. The PMRA, apart from registering approved pesticide products, also re-evaluates registered products and sets maximum pesticide residue limits. In the past as well, there were concerns regarding phosphine pesticides and insecticide chalks that were brought from other countries to Canada to kill bedbugs. Contact Bed Bug Exterminator Pro, we use eco-friendly and approved pesticides to get rid of bed bugs in Toronto safely – guaranteed.

Metro Vancouver Sees Rise in the Number of Invasive Pests
During the last few weeks, Metro Vancouver has seen an increase in the number of invasive pests in the city.
