“Recommendations and decisions to use “least toxic pesticides” and “pesticides as a last resort” have flourished in the last decade, but according to three scientific organizations – the Weed Science Society of America (WSSA), the American Phytopathological Society (APS) and the Plant-Insect Ecosystems Section of the Entomological Society of America (P-IE ESA) – these are not the correct approaches to the pesticide component of an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program.” [Weed Science Society of America]

  1. Dude, i would have stayed in school a lot longer if i knew that there was a “Weed Science Society of America”

  2. Balancing wetlands protection, preventing immunity, and maximizing utility may lead to some silly sounding societies, but the advice given in the article is sound.

  3. Does anyone ever wonder why humans are so defective now they can be killed by a substance designed to wipe out a mosquito?
