NPMA to Host Webinar on New Pyrethroid Labeling Restrictions

Industry Events

The webinar, scheduled for March 21, will provide an update on what to expect regarding label changes and how they will impact the way pest management technicians perform treatments.

For years now, EPA and the State of California have been working on language to mitigate the impact of urban pyrethroid use on water quality. The mitigation is beginning to show up on a variety of PMP pyrethroid labels for use across the United States.

NPMA’s Jim Fredericks and Bob Rosenberg will be presenting a webinar on this topic on Wednesday, March 21, from 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM EDT. CLICK HERE to register.

This webinar will provide an update on what to expect regarding label changes and how they will impact the way pest management technicians perform treatments.

In preparation for this event, participants can send any of their specific questions in advance of the program to npma@pestworld.org.  NPMA will try to respond to all questions during the session, but will post additional questions and answers to its Web site shortly after the webinar.
