University of Tennessee Extension Agent, Tom Stebbins notes, "People often think of pesticides as chemicals that will cause great harm to humans and the environment. However, we use pesticides very commonly in our daily lives. For example, mosquito and tick protection sprays keep us safe from diseases. Chemical sprays keep the fruit flies, clothes moths, cockroaches, and other unwanted crawling or flying visitors out of our houses. This seminar will focus on the many beneficial chemicals and the clarify some of the fearful information we hear in the news media and other sources. Is Round-Up harmful to the environment? Which chemicals are hurting our pollinators? Come and find out how to determine facts from fallacies and other safe methods for using these essential gardening tools."
