Pesticide Safety: A Guide for Gardeners and Homeowners

Pesticides include natural and man-made substances such as insecticides, herbicides, fungicides, disinfectants and rodenticides. They are used to help control, destroy or repel destructive pests such as insects, weeds, plant disease organisms, germs and rodents.

Pesticides can increase the quality and quantity of our food supply, prevent disease and improve the comfort and aesthetics of our environment. The use of pesticides is not without risks. Every pesticide applicator is responsible for preventing harm from occurring to humans, pets, livestock, wildlife or the environment.
