EPA Lawn & Garden Page

EPA's lawn and garden page has resources valuable for teaching consumer pesticide safety and environmentally-friendly pest management methods. This includes a series of videos on effective lawn care methods. Some show master gardeners helping consumers - obviously EPA was sensitive to the Extension partnership we enjoy with the federal agency and it state lead agencies in developing this content.

Regulatory Information Resources

Resources that will help you keep up with what's happening with pesticide regulations.

Laws and Regulations Affecting Pesticide Use in Virginia is a part of this website developed by Virginia Tech Pesticide Programs to summarize the laws and regulations that affect the use of pesticides in the Commonwealth. It is a good place to start if you are trying to find an overview of the regulations enforced by multiple federal and state agencies who deal with pesticides, human health and safety, and the environment.

 

The Virginia Regulatory Town Hall website is a comprehensive source of information about regulations in Virginia. The Town Hall allows you to find regulations and track proposed changes, as well as to submit on-line comments about regulatory changes. You can also register your e-mail address to receive e-mail updates when new actions or meetings are posted.
The link is: http://www.townhall.virginia.gov

 

The EPA maintains a web page on "Regulating Pesticides" that is a valuable resource for anyone trying to understand the pesticide regulatory process. The link to this resource is: http://www.epa.gov/pesticides/regulating/.
