Pest Control

Agricultural pests and nuisances are defined under the Alberta Agricultural Pests Act as any animal, bird, insect, plant or disease which can destroy or harm any land, livestock or property.

Strathcona County works with residents to resolve pest control issues. Municipalities are given this responsibility under the Agricultural Pests Act.
