Pesticide use plays a significant role in agricultural production, forestry, landscape and turf management and public health. In recent years, pest management has shifted from relying heavily on pesticides to using a cohesive approach, called integrated pest management. Integrated pest management is a balanced, tactical approach to pest control, involving taking action to anticipate pest outbreaks and to prevent potential damage.

This course will teach you about different pests, proper methods to control them and how to implement an integrated pest management program. The fifty-minute course qualifies for one Oregon Department of Agriculture's pesticide applicator recertification credit, one Washington State Department of Agriculture recertification credit, one Idaho State Department of Agriculture recertification credit, one Wyoming State Department of Agriculture recertification credit, one Utah State Department of Agriculture recertification credit, one Nevada State Department of Agriculture recertification credit, or one New Mexico State Department of Agriculture recertification credit. The Oregon Department of Agriculture has approved this course as a core class.
