  11. 11. • Fewer people are using pesticides in Toronto. • Natural alternatives to pesticides are growing in popularity. • People are aware of the bylaw. • Bylaw compliance is high. TPH credits these early signs of success in reducing the number of people and companies using pesticides to its dual implementation strategy of broad public education and graduated, firm enforcement.
