Latest Product News

2015: Fall trials focuse on improved methods of applying our Fiesta® Weed Control havve shown a siginficcant inrease in results. Weed death has been slowed down to a small degree while allowing less re-growth, resulting in better overall weed control.

2014: Field trials have begun with a new granular, natural product called Phoma Macrostoma. Phoma Macrostoma is a naturally occuring fungus that has been in development for over 7 years.  It is a promising technology for weed control because it can be applied before weeds begin to be a problem or apllied after they are already growing.  Essentially, it prevents photosynthesis in the weed plant causing it to die.  Its most exciting benefit is that it does not require watering and can be applied virtually any time during the growing season.  An important additional benefit is that it is showing positive results at controlling hard to kill weed species like Violet, Plantain and Creeping Charlie.

LawnSavers is monitoring the efficacy of this new product and will begin including it in its regular program once registered and allowed for use in Ontario, subject to positive results of the field trials.

In May 2010, Fiesta was registered and classified as a Liquid Weed Control in Ontario.  LawnSavers was one of the first companies to use Fiesta and has developed a wealth of experience. Properly applied, along with a high quality fertilizing program, Fiesta can offer a true viable alternative to traditional chemical weed control products

On May 16, 2008, Health Canada’s Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) concluded its re-evaluation of the popular herbicide 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D), finding that the herbicide can be used safely according to label directions for a variety of lawn, turf and agricultural applications.

In issuing the decision, the PMRA stated in its Information Note, “Health Canada also consulted an independent Science Advisory Panel comprised of government and university experts/researchers in toxicology, epidemiology and biology. The Panel agreed with Health Canada’s assessment that 2,4-D can be used safely when used according to label directions, with some uses requiring additional protective measures.”

Health Canada’s decision and other resources pertaining to 2,4-D may be found at:

  • A MESSAGE REGARDING OUR SERVICE and COVID-19:

    LawnSavers by nature employs strict safety guidelines in the use of our nutrients, soil-enhancing minerals, weed and pest controls and application procedures at all times.
    The province of Ontario in addition to many provinces and states have designated Pest Control Exterminators as ‘essential services’.  (we dont take this responsibility lightly)

    Our Professional, Ontario-licenced Service Technicians work alone in their own assigned, sanitized-daily service vehicles.  Our service treatments are outside which means we are not in contact with the general public or others during our daily duties as part of our standard operating procedures.

    Our professional and uniformed staff wear protective safety equipment including gloves and eye protection, and keep our selves and our vehicles clean and sanitized as regular daily safety measures. As always, LawnSavers provides your service information/invoice after each visit to our clients through email to reduce paper and also contact.

    Our service normally includes knocking on doors before service  as a courtesy to let our clients know we are on your property and to discuss specific client needs. However, this contact method will be suspended indefinitely during this time.  We will still advise you the day before service by email, and we will also send email reports right after each visit with customized notes and directions (as always). If you would like to talk about service, a friendly Customer Success Representative is just a phone call away.

    Spring turf and tree growth won’t wait, and weeds and insect pests don’t either!  It is important for us to continue timely treatments to promote a thick green and healthy lawn that can fight off pests proactively during the season so you can enjoy your home and outdoor environment.
    Thank you!
