National Pesticide Safety Education Month is the National Stakeholder Team’s newest initiative, designed to reinforce core principles of safe pesticide use with many audiences and raise awareness of and support for PSEPs. Any group with an interest in the safe use of pesticides is invited to participate, with appropriate messages targeted to private and commercial applicators, homeowners, growers, apartment dwellers, farmworkers, students, technicians, salespeople, shoppers, legislators, and other interested members of the general public. Preparations are now underway for the next National Pesticide Safety Education Month (February 2019), and official sponsors will again provide cash or non-cash contributions to PSEPs.
