February is National Pesticide Safety Education month, and the Beaver County Conservation District West Nile Program would like to remind everyone to use pesticides responsibly and safely.  Homeowners use pesticides on their persons and property to help stay safe from mosquitoes, ticks, and other insects that can carry diseases.  So, this February, we would like to offer information related to pesticide use, storage, and disposal.  The following information is provided in cooperation with these various agencies, the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (PA DEP), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the National Pesticide Information Center (NPIC), and the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture.

It is important to understand the life cycle and habits of mosquitoes to reduce mosquito populations and reduce the risk for vector-borne diseases that mosquitoes can carry.
