True or FalseCorrectIncorrect
Non Agricultural Restricted entry intervals are not generally listed for these uses, though the label often
cautions people and pets not to enter treated areas until the spray has dried or dust has settled. True or FalseCorrectIncorrect
8.Toxicity Category 1 pesticides are moderately toxic. True or FalseCorrectIncorrect

Carpenter ants have a ring of yellow hairs on their abdomen. True or FalseCorrectIncorrect
How a lawn is watered has no effect on ant control. True or FalseCorrectIncorrect
Repellent pesticides are always the most effective ant control solution. True or FalseCorrectIncorrect
Dusts can always be applied in large amounts with little effect on control. True or FalseCorrectIncorrect
The airborne movement of pesticide particles from the target area occurs only during application and is
clearly visible when it occurs. True or FalseCorrectIncorrect
Pesticide adsorption is greatest in course, sandy soil. True or FalseCorrectIncorrect
Runoff is usually more likely from a water-saturated soil than from an unsaturated soil. True or FalseCorrectIncorrect
Pesticide properties have little if any effect on whether a chemical will reach groundwater. True or FalseCorrectIncorrect
Drift can be minimized if precautionary measures are taken (monitor weather, alter spray systems). True or FalseCorrectIncorrect
Three primary factors contribute to pesticide spray drift are:
Weather conditions; Equipment configuration and operation and applicator attitude. True or FalseCorrectIncorrect
Drift is most commonly due to off-target movement of pesticide spray droplets. True or FalseCorrectIncorrect
Runoff is a process that moves pesticides in water. Runoff occurs as water moves over a sloping surface
carrying pesticide, either mixed in the water or bound to eroding soil. True or FalseCorrectIncorrect
Leaching is a process that moves pesticides in water. Several factors influence the leaching of pesticides,
such as water solubility of the pesticide, soil texture and adsorption. True or FalseCorrectIncorrect
Groundwater contamination is a major concern associated with the leaching of pesticides. Keeping our water
safe is the responsibility of everyone. As a licensed (PMP) Pest Management Professional you should always
set an example of environmental stewardship. Prevention is the best remedy to minimize ground water
contamination. True or FalseCorrectIncorrect
Calibration of equipment is only necessary for tractors pulling sprayers and other motorized equipment. True or FalseCorrectIncorrect
Restrict the application of pesticides that are toxic to bees and other pollinators when weeds and flowering
plants are in bloom unless the client or homeowner insists they don’t want bees around. True or FalseCorrectIncorrect
Pesticides can enter water via drift, surface runoff, soil erosion, leaching, and in some cases, deliberate or
careless release of the pesticide directly into the water. Fish kills are most often caused by insecticide
contamination of small ponds or streams with low water volume or turnover. True or FalseCorrectIncorrect
Birds can ingest the toxicant in granules, baits or treated seed; they may be exposed directly to the spray;
they may consume a treated food source; they may drink or use contaminated water; or they may feed on
pesticide-contaminated prey. True or FalseCorrectIncorrect
Pets, birds and other wildlife can be killed when baits are left unattended or improperly placed. Granule
pesticides are particularly attractive to birds, since they are often mistaken for food. True or FalseCorrectIncorrect
When selecting the chemical you are going to use for a treatment, it doesn’t matter if it is the most toxic or
the least toxic because what’s most important is the results. True or FalseCorrectIncorrect
The hazard to the bees increases when the material can be carried back to the hive. Since
microencapsulated and dust formulations are picked up with pollen, they are the most dangerous because they
can affect the brood as well as other adults fed by the contaminated pollen. True or FalseCorrectIncorrect
From a food standpoint, about 1/3 of the food we eat requires pollination. True or FalseCorrectIncorrect
When using products that require dilution, mix the correct amount for the job. Adding more doesn’t kill pests
any more dead it just wastes chemical and adds to the increased possibility of off target contamination. True or FalseCorrectIncorrect
A spray wand with a cone tip verses pin stream will put out the same amounts of liquid in the same time
period with the same pressure. True or FalseCorrectIncorrect
