Pesticide Management

The Emory community takes pride in maintaining a beautiful 630-acre campus. This requires the occasional use of pesticides which must be carefully applied and managed. Emory uses Integrated Pest Management (IPM) techniques to minimize pesticide use. All Emory staff that are responsible for pesticide application receive training to ensure proper and safe use of pesticides. All applicators have a pesticide application license with the state of Georgia or are under the supervision of an individual with a license. EHSO frequently audits applicators and sites of application to ensure compliance at all levels. Emory is a neonicotinoid free campus to protect bees and other pollinators.
