Insecticide Basics for the Pest Management Professional

The intent of this course is to educate the PMP about pesticides and to instill vigilance in their handling and use.  When used responsibly, pesticide-based controls can reduce or eliminate a pest population while maintaining a stable, sound environment. Because many pesticides are broad-spectrum, they must be used with great care to prevent undesirable effects.  In order to understand how to use chemical pest control products responsibly, PMPs must have a basic understanding of the various definitions associated with pesticides, be able to interpret labels and material safety data sheets (including principles of toxicity), be aware of their own safety, understand the mode of action (I.e., how pesticides work) of the various active ingredients they use and be aware of differences in formulation types.
