The Urban Pyrethroid Stewardship

Since 2008, the Urban Pyrethroid Stewardship – a pesticide industry alliance – has been promoting “Apply Responsibly.” The campaign is committed to educating Californians in urban areas about environmentally responsible ways to handle, store and dispose of a wide range of home and garden pesticide products, including insecticides containing pyrethroids. The program also provides a wide range of resources for consumers who want to learn more about integrated pest management, pest prevention and general gardening.

Mission Statement

The Pyrethroid Working Group is a national task force formed to promote sound science and foster the responsible use of pyrethroid-based pest control products.
