The Facilities department of the Philomath School District must occasionally spot spray pesticides and herbicides in order to maintain the grounds of the district’s schools. Pesticides are sprayed around the buildings to control ants and termites. Pesticide spraying is done by the Good Earth Company of Philomath on weekends and non-school days. Herbicides are applied by Straub Landscape staff to playing fields and around fences on weekends and non-school days.
The district applies the best practices policy of applying chemicals only when all other forms of pest control have been exhausted. All chemicals are applied by licensed applicators. Licenses, lists of chemicals used, and MSDS sheets for chemicals are available from the Facilities Department upon request.
Spraying times will be posted on this web site 24 hours prior to application as well as at the facility or field during time of application.
On May 19-20, 2018, the flower gardens and landscaped areas around Philomath High School will be sprayed with herbicides for weed control. Please stay off these areas during the stated dates.
