We have a pesticide ban here in Ontario. Most home owners have used up there old pesticides.
On a side note I decide to try my local municipalities finished compost and spread 3 yards on my own lawn. Glad I tried it on my own lawn. It was contaminated with glass. Everytime it rained I would find more glass the size of a quarter through out the lawn. I called the municipality and they traced the batch and said it had an acceptable level of "foriegn matter". Never again for me.
