Alabama Pest Management Handbook
The Alabama Pest Management Handbook—Volume II contains recommendations for houses, buildings, and grounds; commercial trees and ornamental crops; commercial horticultural crops; and homeowner lawns and ornamental and garden crops. It was compiled by both current and former Extension entomologists, plant pathologists, weed scientists, and a pesticide safety education specialist and provides the most recent information possible on the selection, rates, application, and safe and proper use of pesticides. A directory of the specialists who authored sections in this notebook is included.
Since the status of pesticides is constantly changing, some that are currently listed in this volume of the Alabama Pest Management Handbook may no longer be legal. Also, some recently labeled pesticides may not yet be included in this volume. For these reasons, anyone preparing to use a pesticide should always consult the current pesticide label on the container before application.
Chemicals are listed both by common names (lowercase letters) and by trade names (all capital letters). Some chemicals are available only under trade names and, therefore, their common names may be omitted because of space restrictions. The presence or absence of any particular trade name in no way indicates endorsement or discrimination on the part of the Alabama Cooperative Extension System.
Recommended uses of pesticides are based on research, field trials, demonstrations, and experience. Because of variations in environmental conditions and methods of application, these recommendations do not assure that your results will always be the same as those obtained in research.
