Safe pesticide use is an important practice year-round and can be successfully implemented by remembering the following:
- Professionalism: Know your products and their safety requirements
- Protecting the environment: Ensuring minimal exposure to non-targets and keeping products out of environmental sensitive areas
- Providing care for the pest management professionals (PMP) and customers: Understanding how to handle and apply pesticides in ways that protect yourself, co-workers, and the public.
Pesticides can be useful and valuable products in an integrated pest management (IPM) plan. However, they can quickly turn dangerous if not applied correctly or stored properly.
