Vector Control Review

In order to receive annual approval from ODFW, Vector Control Districts and Counties will be required to add the following language into their annual Pesticide Use Plan as their recognition of ODFW’s recommendations contained in the guidance document:

“The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW) has statutory authority under ORS 452.140 and ORS 452.245 to annually approve Pesticide Use Plans.  ODFW recommends the treatment protocols outlined in the “Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife’s Vector Control Guidance for Sensitive Areas” (attached) as a means to protect fish, wildlife, and their habitats while allowing for efficient and effective control of vector species to protect human health.  The “Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife’s Vector Control Guidance for Sensitive Areas” document provides ODFW’s recommendations only.  Should the (insert VCD name here) choose to implement an IPM plan that varies from ODFW’s recommendations, our authority comes from another source, such as label restrictions (EPA and FIFRA), NOAA and USFWS rules, ODA’s pesticide rules, DEQ’s Pesticide General Permit, and OHA’s annual PUP approval.  Variation from ODFW’s recommendations does not constitute a violation of the PUP approval as long as all other State and Federal regulations are followed.  The (insert VCD name here) understands, however, that ODFW reserves the ability to more strictly implement their statutory authority at any time new research reveals threats to fish, wildlife, or their habitats or new products become available for use.  In addition, ODFW requires prior communication with local staff concerning surveillance, issues or treatment on ODFW-owned or managed Wildlife Areas.”
