Abstract

Although other methods of pest control are important, pesticides continue to be an efficient, cost-effective method of management. The challenge is to select and apply pesticides in a manner that kills the target pest and does not harm non-target organisms or the environment. Sound and sensible management can reduce the probability of pesticides entering surface water.
