Licensed pesticide private applicators are required to recertify every five years by obtaining 15 continuing education credits, including two (2) credits in laws and regulations and two (2) credits in integrated pest management (IPM), prior to expiration of the license. To partially satisfy this requirement, the Hopkins County Extension Office has scheduled a 5 CEU Pesticide Private Applicator Session for Nov 7, 2018. The topics include: 1 hr for Laws and Regulations, Pond Weed Control, management of native grassland, integrated pest management for small grains, and Bermuda grass management update including insect control of introduced pastures and hay fields. The program is partially sponsored by NETBIO. For more information or to register (limited to 100) call the Hopkins County Extension Office at 903-885-3443.
