Northeast Massachusetts Mosquito Control and Wetlands Management District is a proud participant in the EPA's Pesticide Environmental Stewardship Program
The Pesticide Environmental Stewardship Program (PESP) is an EPA partnership program that works with the nation’s pesticide-user community to promote Integrated Pest Management (IPM) practices. PESP is guided by the principle that partnership programs follow the standards and decisions established by regulatory and registration actions. The informed actions of pesticide users can further reduce the risks from pests and pesticides by playing a major role in ensuring human health and environmental safety.
The Pesticide Environmental Stewardship Program (PESP) is a voluntary program that forms partnerships between the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and informed pesticide users to reduce the potential health and environmental risks that may be associated with pesticide use. NEMMC participates in this partnership along with the Northeast Mosquito Control Association (NMCA) to promote Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program within our member communities.
NEMMC offers each city or town a Best Management Practice (BMP). BMP’s are designed to incorporate the District’s environmentally sensitive and cost effective mosquito control strategies with the specific needs and concerns of each member community.
