MODESTO, Calif. — Debug the Myths, a consumer education program sponsored by RISE (Responsible Industry for a Sound Environment), is on the road once again to help people understand the benefits of pesticide and fertilizer products. The consumer education program, sponsored by RISE, just finished a California trip that included stops in Fresno, Stockton and Sacramento. Activities included:

• “Team Up to Clean Up” events at local Boys & Girls Clubs designed to give club members the opportunity to gain hands-on landscaping experience while learning about the value of maintaining outdoor spaces.

• Educational sessions at local garden centers teaching consumers about numerous topics including mosquito and tick control, pest management and pets, and how to read product labels as a first step to selecting the right product.

• Fun, memorable activities encouraging further online engagement with Debug the Myths, such as green screen photos and an online quiz designed to answer the question, “What Pest Are You?”

• Behind-the-scenes tours for local media at minor league baseball facilities and golf courses.

RISE’s Debug the Myth West tour finished on June 19 and its Sacramento stop included Timber Creek Golf Course and Raley Field (home of the Sacramento River Cats).

Below is a slideshow of photos taken from stops in Sacramento and Modesto.
