UW Extension offers southeast Wyoming pesticide applicator training

UW Extension educator Caleb Carter

         Several trainings to obtain or renew pesticide applicator licenses are being offered across southeast Wyoming in February and March by the University of Wyoming Extension.

The training includes integrated pest management, how to properly read and understand the label, types and use of personal protective equipment and federal reporting requirements.

Four hours of continuing education credits are available to any commercial pesticide applicator license holders.

Applications will be submitted to the Wyoming Department of Agriculture for approval and issuance of licenses upon course completion.

Obtaining a private pesticide applicators license allows individuals to purchase and apply restricted use pesticides for private use.
