Portland, Maine Ordinance Passes

Last week on a 9-0 vote, the City Council in Portland, Maine approved an ordinance that will prohibit the use of all synthetic pesticides on both public and private property beginning July 1, 2018. This ordinance follows a similar one passed in neighboring South Portland. For landscape professionals, this means that only products that are listed by the EPA as minimum risk and permitted by the USDA’s National List of Allowed and Prohibited Substances can be used. Use of synthetic pesticides on golf courses that have attained sanctuary status through Audubon International, sports fields owned by the city, rights-of way maintained by the city as well as treatment for certain invasive insects of shade trees are still permitted.READ MORE
