  • help you understand and mitigate the risks associated with using sprays and cultural control methods
  • provide an overview of relevant regulations
  • show what to look for on a pest control product label to make sure you select the right product and use it correctly
With guest presenter Dan Wixted of the Cornell Cooperative Extension Pesticide Safety Education Program, and with plenty of time for Dan to answer your questions afterward.
