Broad Weed Spraying

The City of Nedlands advises that as of 9 September 2013 all turf areas within parks and reserves throughout the City will commence treatment for the control of broadleaf weeds.

Due to the unpredictable nature of weather conditions, exact dates for spraying cannot be confirmed. Appropriate signage as required by the Health (Pesticides) Regulations 2011 will be clearly displayed during the application. Treatment will be undertaken by licensed contractors under the supervision of City staff.

Signage will be placed at each location. The operations will be monitored by City officers in accordance with safety guidelines and the City asks the public not to enter onto the area whilst the signs are displayed. When the surface has dried the signs will be removed and the public will be free to enter the area.

City staff in attendance during and after treatment will be able to assist the public with any questions they may have.

The product to be applied is a weed specific selective herbicide consisting of the active chemical combination:

  •  MCPA - 300 g/L + Clopyralid - 20 g/L + Diflufenican - 15 g/L.

The product is to be applied in accordance with the product label as is required by state and federal laws.
