Integrated pest management procedures such as inspections and monitoring are used to identify conditions contributing to pest problems and to determine when to control pests. The Gervais School District has identified that there is a safety concern with the condition of the grounds due to pests and weeds. As a result, Gervais School District will be using a contractor to spray a broadleaf herbicide for turf on all fields and lawns this weekend. Where possible, persons who potentially are more sensitive, such as pregnant women and infants (less than two years old), should avoid any unnecessary pesticide exposure. The following information regarding potential adverse effects was taken from the material safety data sheet (MSDS) of the pesticide to be applied: moderately irritating to the eyes and skin.
