    • Description:
      The topic for the Summer edition of the Poison Center and Public Health Collaboration Community of Practice (PCPHCoP) newsletter is pesticides. Pesticide use and abuse is common during spring and summer months as people say goodbye

      to winter and begin their spring cleaning, gardening, yard projects, and yard maintenance. Pesticides are routinely used during these chores to curb or halt the occurrence of unwanted pests and weeds. Safety is vital as people use these products. Users must follow manufacturer instructions and wear personal protective equipment (PPE) to avoid poisoning when using pesticides and other chemicals. However, pesticides should not be the first step in controlling pests. They can help to control pests, but only if the root causes are also addressed. Integrated pest management (IPM) can be implemented in most pest man- agement situations prior to using pesticides. IPM is a science- based approach for reducing populations of disease vectors and public health pests by using a variety of pest management techniques that focus on pest prevention, pest reduction, and the elimination of conditions that lead to pest infestations.1 Health care providers, cooperative extension agents, employers, and pesticide manufacturers can help prevent harmful expo-sures by encouraging the use of integrated pest management (IPM) practices, encouraging the use of less toxic agents, and by increasing education on the harmful effects of pesticide misuse. Please read on to learn more about pesticides.
