How To Use This Information

1) On the county map, find the specific shading patterns
   that cover the area where you will apply pesticides.

2) Read the shading key for those patterns to identify
   the specific area involved.

3) In the "Table of Pesticide Active Ingredients," locate
   the active ingredients in the pesticide you intend
   to apply.

4) Locate the code to the right of the active ingredient
   name and under the shading patterns that apply
   to you.

5) When using the pesticide, you should follow the
   limitations indicated for those codes described under
   "Limitations on Pesticide Use."

6) If you are applying more than one listed active
   ingredient or applying a listed active ingredient in
   an area with more than one shaded pattern (species),
   multiple codes may apply. If so, you should follow
   the most restrictive limitation.

Shading Key
      I Kirtland's warbler (wood), Dendroica kirtlandii. Within the shaded area shown on
       the map, habitat consists of stands of jack pine 4-20 feet tall (approx. 8-25 years old).
       Limitations do not apply to isolated stands of jack pine less than 40 acres large. If you are
       within the shaded area, follow the limitations in the pesticide table or contact the U.S. Fish
       and Wildlife Service at (517) 337-6650. The Fish and Wildlife Service will need to know the
       location and perhaps other details of your application site, as well as the product's active
       ingredients. The Fish and Wildlife Service will then tell you whether your site is within the
       habitat of the species and is therefore subject to the limitations.

                                           Reducing Runoff and Drift

         Careful use of pesticides can diminish harm to the environment and reduce exposure of endangered and
         threatened species to pesticides. Using pesticide runoff and drift measures may be helpful in keeping more
         of the applied pesticide on the field and may also lower your costs of pesticides.

         Runoff
         Where possible, use methods which reduce soil erosion, such as limited till and contour plowing; these
         methods also reduce pesticide runoff.
         Where feasible, use application techniques such as T banding and in-furrow techniques, which incorporate
         the pesticide into the soil.
         Pesticides with ground water warning labels are more likely to enter ground and surface water than those
         without such warnings.  When possible, use a pesticide that does not contain a ground water warning label.
         Keep informed about changing weather conditions, and try to avoid pesticide application when heavy
         rainfall is expected.
         Drift
         Wind direction, speed, and evaporation are important factors in reducing drift. Most importantly,
         pesticides should be applied when the wind direction is away from areas of concern; try to avoid applica-
         tion during periods of high winds. Avoiding applications during the hottest part of the day, when evapora-
         tion is highest, will further reduce drift.
         When high winds and excessive evaporation are not present, a drift retardant may be useful for aerial
         applications.
         Using the largest droplet size compatible with the pesticide coverage will reduce drift. Typically, higher
         spray volumes will also result in less drift.
