Private pesticide applicator programs planned next month at BHC Weed & Pest

The University of Wyoming Extension will offer private pesticide applicator education programs next month at Big Horn County Weed & Pest, located at 4782 U.S. Highway 310 west of Greybull.  Dates are Feb. 5 from 8 a.m. to noon and Feb. 28 from 1 to 5 p.m.
Private applicator licenses are required for anyone who applies or supervises the application of Restricted Use Pesticides (RUPs).
The four-hour private applicator education programs provide an overview of certification requirements, pertinent regulations, pesticide safety and handling, proper disposal practices and more.
Applicators can attend any program that fits their schedule. All participants are required to bring a government-issued ID, such as a driver’s license, to their session.
Upon completion of a program, applications for private applicator licenses are submitted to the Wyoming Department of Agriculture for approval and issuance of licenses. For more information, contact a local UW Extension office.
