As in the past, producers are required to complete and sign a “Purchase Agreement Form” prior to receiving the product and are also required to complete a “Product Evaluation Form”, post treatment, and submit that form to the to the RM who will collect and send copies of these forms to the Ministry of Agriculture.
The “Integrated Pest Management for Richardson Ground Squirrels” fact sheet should be handed out with each initial purchase of the product.
