The Georgia Pest Management Handbook—2017 Home and Garden Edition provides current information on selection, application, and safe use of pest control chemicals. This handbook has recommendations for pest control around homes, on pets, for pests of home garden vegetables, fruits and ornamentals, and for pests of public health interest associated with our homes. Cultural, biological, physical, and other types of control are recommended where appropriate.
Recommendations are based on information on the manufacturers' labels and on performance data from research and extension trials at the University of Georgia and sister institutions. Because environmental conditions, the severity of pest pressure, and methods of application by growers vary widely, recommendations do not imply that performance of pesticides will always be acceptable.
Specific rates and application methods are on the pesticide label. Always follow the use instructions and precautions on the pesticide label. Trade and brand names are used only for information. The University of Georgia does not guarantee nor warrant published standards on any product mentioned; neither does the use of a trade or brand name imply approval of any product to the exclusion of others which may also be suitable. Please send improvement suggestions to email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
