Most successful plant care programs use a combination of practices for dealing with pest problems. Pesticides are only one approach for pest control, and if pesticides are used, they must be applied correctly and safely.

Not all pesticides work the same – some weed killers will kill everything while others target specific plants. As a retailer, working with the public and with pesticides, it is important that you understand the products and what they can and can’t do.

This training will take you through the various aspects of Integrated Pest Management (IPM) and pesticides. You’ll learn how to better understand the label, make sure the display area is safe, and help your customers choose the most effective pest management controls.

You’ll need to register to begin this course. After successfully finishing all of the training components, you will be able to print out a certificate of completion.
