 Protecting  Endangered
Species
Interim  Measures
Little River County. Arkansas
                           The information in this pamphlet is similar to
                           what the U.S. Environmental Protection
                           Agency (EPA) expects to distributeonce our
                       Endangered Species Protection Program is in
                       effect. The limitations on pesticide use are not
                       law at this time, but are being provided now for
                       your use in voluntarily protecting endangered and
                       threatened species from harm due to pesticide
                       use. We encourage you to use this information.
                       We also welcome your comments.

                        The Endangered Species Act is intended to
                      protect and promote recovery of animals and
                      plants that are in danger of becoming extinct due
                      to the activities of people. Under the Act, EPA
                      must ensure that use of pesticides it registers will
                      not result in harm to the species listed as
                      endangered or threatened by the U.S. fish and
                      Wildlife Service, or to habitat critical to those
                      species' survival. To implement the Endangered
                      Species Protection Program, labels of certain
                      pesticides will direct users to bulletins similar to
                      this sample pamphlet. This program will protect
                      endangered and threatened species from harm due
                      to pesticide use.
                       EPA requests your comments regarding the
                      information presented in this publication. Please
                      let us know whether the information is clear and
                      correct. Also tell us to what extent following the
                      recommended measures would affect you typical
                      pesticide use or productivity. This information
                      will be considered by EPA during the final stages
                      of program development.

                                          About This Publication

                                            This publication contains a County Map
                                          showing (he Area within the county where
                                          pesticide use should be limited to protect listed
                                          species. These areas are identified on the map by
                                          a shaded pattern. Each shaded pattern
                                          corresponds to a species in need of protection.
                                            The Shading Key shows the name of the species
                                          that each shaded pattern represents and often
                                          describes the shaded area. The area may be
                                          described in terms of Township, Range, and
                                          Section or by giving details about the habitat of
                                          the species.
                                           The first column of the "Table of Pesticide
                                          Active Ingredients" lists the active ingredients for
                                          which there should be limitations on use to
                                          protect certain species. The next columns are
                                          headed by the shaded pattern of the species with
                                          Codes listed underneath them.
                                           The Code indicates the specific limitation that is
                                          necessary to protect  the species. The section titled
                                          Limitations on Pesticide Use explains the code.

                                          Does Thiis Information Apply to You?

                                          To determine whether this information applies
                                         to your use of a pesticide, review the questions
                                         below. The information applies only if you
                                         answer "yes" to both questions:
                                           Do you intend to use pesticides within or
                                            near the shaded area on the county map?
                                           Are any of the ingredients listed on the front
                                            panel of your pesticide product label named
                                            in the "Table of Pesticide Active
                                            Ingredients"?
                                          If you answer "yes" to both questions, you
                                         should follow the instructions on "How to Use
                                         This Information" to determine if you should
                                         limit use of the pesticide to help protect listed
                                         species.
                                          If you answer "no" to either question, you
                                         should follow the usage directions on the
                                        pesticide product label.

How To Use This Information
1) On the county map, find the specific shading pattern(s)
    in or near the area where you intend to apply pesticides.

2) Read the descriptor under the Shading Key for the
   pattern(s) to identify the specific area involved.
3) In the "Table of Pesticide Active Ingredients," locate the
   active ingredient in the pesticide you intend to apply.
4) Locate the code to the right of the active ingredient name
   and under the shading pattem(s) that apply to you.
5) When using the pesticide, find the code(s) described
   under "Limitations on Pesticide Use" and follow the
   limitation given.
6) If you are applying more than one listed active ingredient
   or applying a listed active ingredient in an area with
    more than one shading pattern  (species), multiple codes
    may apply. If so, you should follow the most restrictive
    limitation.
 7)  Read the information on Reducing Runoff and Drift in
    this pamphlet.

 Using the largest droplet size compatible with the pesticide coverage win reduce drift. Typically , higher spray volumes
 will also result hi less drift.
