Pesticide Use, Noxious Weeds, and Weed Management
February 8 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm$35
Noxious weeds are everyone’s problem and they can not only reduce crop yields, and destroy native plant and animal habitat, they can damage recreational sites, clog waterways, lower land values, and poison humans and livestock. Identification and control of Class A weeds and Class B designated weeds will be a priority. Homeowners can learn how to reduce the impact of Class B and Class C weeds to a lower level of significance.
To help the homeowner, a wide array of pesticides has been developed to control pests in and around the home and garden. But just how safe are pesticides? This is a very important question, particularly for the applicator and for those who may come in contact with the pesticides before, during, or immediately after the application. By their nature, many pesticides may pose some risk to humans, animals, or the environment because they are designed to kill or otherwise adversely affect living organisms. At the same time, pesticides are often useful because of their ability to control disease-causing organisms, insects, weeds, or other pests. The pesticide label is your guide to using pesticides safely and effectively. It contains pertinent information that you should read and understand before you use a pesticide product.
