We also offer the Pest Management Information Series of brochures for residents, designed specifically for homeowners and apartment dwellers who need to manage pests. The DEC Pest Management Information Series is the Department's primary source of information on pest management issues for New York State residents. The residential sector is one of the largest pesticide users in the State and it is important to provide information and guidance on proper pest management and pesticide use. Pest management concerns facing the homeowner and apartment dweller include pests such as insects, rodents, weeds, fungus and microorganisms.
