PESTICIDE PRECAUTIONS

The Colorado Department of Agriculture requires that pesticide applicators (for compensation) be licensed, insured, and extensively trained, including on-going education requirements.

If you choose to purchase and use pesticides for your home landscape, please be very careful. Insecticides, herbicides and fungicides can be helpful tools if used correctly. For personal safety, public safety and environmental safety, you must read and follow label
directions precisely. Don’t have the mindset that “if a little is good, a lot will be better”. Proper mixing rates, timing of application, proper identification of your target
pest(s) and their life cycle, and appropriate weather conditions can make or break the success of any treatment.

I am concerned with products marketed to homeowners that contain multiple chemicals for “broad-spectrum insect control” or “kills grass and broadleaf plants all-season long”. These insecticide mixes may not be effective for your particular problem, or “extended
season weed control” might have harsher chemicals that can affect your nearby plants, even your trees.
