The Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services launched a website to assist homeowners, gardeners and others on the safe use of pesticides. The department created the site after staff in its office of pesticide services concluded a lot of pesticides information needed correcting.

Commissioner Matt Lohr says the website will be useful to anyone who has applied a pesticide to their lawn to kill weeds or insects. Farmers and groundskeepers can also find value in the Virginia Pesticide Safety website.
