Abstract

Do you need a quick training reference to common pesticide formulations? This poster introduces new pest control technicians to pesticide product formulations. The poster has quick response (QR) codes that link to videos showing example formulations of liquid pesticides, baits, pressurized aerosols, and a variety of dry product pesticides. Technicians need to be familiar with the products and formulations they are using, so this poster and its videos will be a useful training tool for pest management companies.
