Professional pest control industry perspective on public concerns and regulatory issues

, : Professional pest control industry perspective on public concerns and regulatory issues. Racke, K. D. , Leslie, A. R. Acs Symposium Series; Pesticides In Urban Environments: Fate And Significance: 41-43

The professional pest control industry feels that the public's concerns about urban/suburban pesticide use must be taken seriously. The industry is addressing these concerns by using the well-established concept of risk communication--an approach that consists of giving the public open and complete information about pesticide applications. As part of the industry's risk communication program, it is promoting its support of reasonable and responsible legislation, including a requirement for notifying the public when pesticides are applied. It is also pursuing regulations requiring additional education for all pesticide applicators. The industry believes this approach will lessen the public's fear of pesticides, and make them feel more comfortable about urban/suburban pesticide use.
