Crop Pests and Diseases
Agricultural pests and nuisances are defined under the the Alberta Agricultural Pest Act as any animal, bird, insect, plant or disease which negatively impacts agricultural production.
Camrose County is responsible for protecting the agricultural productivity of the municipality by controlling native and introduced pests. Private landowners are also accountable for controlling pests on their properties.
Camrose County Agriculture Services works with residents to resolve pest control issues by providing:
- information, inspections and advice
- the rental of traps for the control of skunks and other animal pests
- bait for producers having problems with coyote predation on livestock
- chemical for the control of gophers (Richardson Ground Squirrels)
Individuals must ensure the capture and disposal of pests is done in a safe and humane manner.
