If you see anyone spraying pesticides in today's conditions please report the activity.
Tip of the day!
Why you should report a violation...Would you report a hazardous driver who may cause harm to themselves, pedestrians or other on the road? For these same reasons you should report a reckless pesticide applicator. Spraying pesticides in windy conditions causes toxic trespass to neighboring properties and pedestrians. Spraying in the rain can pollute drinking water and wells. Pesticide pollution can cause both immediate and long term serious health effects.
