An integrated program for controlling pests includes practices that we have discussed previously like choosing the proper cultivars, proper mowing, irrigation, fertilization, drainage, and cultivation that sustain a healthy turf.  Pesticides are one part of an integrated pest control program.   The desired properties of a pesticide as described by Turgeon (2012) include: 1. Effective control of the pest 2. Should not extend beyond the pest to be controlled 3. Should not persist beyond the control period 4. Present minimal hazards to humans In this interactive program we look at the major components of a pesticide label and what the components mean.
