What Do You Think About Our New Pesticides And Consumers Resource Directory?

By Chris Gillis

Have you tried to find consumer information about pesticides on EPA’s website at www.epa.gov/pesticides only to find yourself overwhelmed with so much information that you didn’t know where to start? Did you click on link after link only to find that they didn’t contain the information that you were looking for? We know how that feels.

That is why we have created a Pesticides and Consumers Resource Directory at www.epa.gov/safepestcontrol because we don’t want you to waste your time clicking on irrelevant links.

Go ahead, check it out and click on all you see: www.epa.gov/safepestcontrol. Explore the resource directory and give us your feedback. Take the pesticides puzzler quiz. Learn more about why we use pesticides and how to control pests safely. If you can’t find what you are looking for, ask us a question. Want to keep up with pesticide news? Follow the current pesticides news link and let us know what you think.

The new resource directory is designed to help you find the information you need easily and quickly. How easy was it for you to navigate through our new page? Was there something you expected to find on the page that wasn’t there? Was anything unclear or confusing? Do the pictures and graphics convey the intended message or distract you from the information at hand?

Remember, this Web page is for you and the more feedback you give us, the more we can improve it to make your experience easier and improve pesticide safety.

How do you like the site now?
