Pesticide Background

“Pesticides” are substances that control various “pests”:  weeds (herbicides), fungus (fungicides), and insects (insecticides). Choosing a particular pesticide can be challenging and sometimes confusing.

Hopefully, these factsheets will help make that process a little less complicated.

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.

A word of caution:  always take time to read the label to ensure that you are mixing, applying, and storing the product correctly.
