On occasion there is a need to carry out aerial application programs to control established pests or eradicate invasive species to prevent populations from establishing. These programs may be required in highly populated areas such as Toronto, Mississauga, Surrey, and are highly sensitive in nature and very complex logistically to plan and execute.

Municipal and or Provincial bylaws may need to be passed; and an extensive Transport Canada risk assessment and approval process must be presented and approved. These plans will include application and timing restrictions, aircraft type restrictions, pesticide product restrictions, personnel experience requirements, public consultation, and notification among other requirements.
