Gopher Control- Liquid Strychnine Phase Out

19/03/2020

The Pesticide Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) has made final decision to cancel the approved use of strychnine to control Richardson Ground Squirrels (RGS).

PMRA’s plan is to phase out the product over the next three years, making the product unavailable after March 4, 2021 and fully banned for use March 4, 2023. There is currently no alternative to control RGS.

The municipality currently has Liquid Strychnine available, please call the office to put in your order so that you ensure you have the product to help eradicate this pest!

Research has shown that early treatment with liquid strychnine is the most effective method for gopher control.
Please call the RM office at 306 297-2520 to order your liquid strychnine soon.
