Making Sense of Pesticides

— Written By

Choosing the “right” pesticide (herbicides, fungicides, insecticides) can be challenging and oftentimes confusing. These factsheets are intended to serve as a guide to help that process a little less complicated. They can be downloaded as a PDF or viewed on your web browser.

Before using any pesticide; however, the target pest–be it a weed, an insect, or a fungus–should be correctly identified by a trusted resource. Always take time uninterrupted to read the label to ensure that you are mixing, applying, and storing the product correctly. Contact your local extension office for more information.
