Abstract/Contents:"Every year, more limitations are placed on pesticide usage and application by legislators reacting to the fears of a concerned public. It is essential that steps be taken to make pesticide usage more environmentally friendly. When the public sees spray, they assume that it is a pesticide especially when the driver is wearing what looks like a World War II gas mask that they associate with chemical warfare. Biological control methods still in their infancy, need to be developed more before they can even partially replace chemicals. His only choices are in the means of application. The first is to apply pesticide and fertilizer in the irrigation system. Secondly, he can spray in the very early morning while it's still dark and no one is on the course. Superintendents should use a shroud sprayer which placed over the spray boom encloses the spray inside containing drift, increasing safety. Several companies market a safety helmet resembling a motorcycle helmet. They blow filtered air over the head and face of the operator. It is much more comfortable to wear; plus it eliminates the skin/mask interface where pesticides can be trapped and absorbed into operator's skin. The applicator must dress his people in either blue, green or brown. Other colors have a negative danger connotation, especially white, yellow and red. Public perception of safety must be considered in everything that is done on the course to ensure that it does not initiate fear."
