Extension’s Bernard interviewed by media on pesticides

The Portland Press Herald and U.S. Sun featured an interview with Kerry Bernard, a University of Maine Cooperative Extension pesticide safety education program professional, on a pesticide used on property in Camden. Bernard said the pesticide, Tebuthiuron, is problematic because it is mobile in water, doesn’t easily break down and takes little to damage vegetation. CentralMaine.com shared the report from the Press Herald.
