The shelves of garden centers are filled with various options for pest control, including oils. But choosing the right oil for your problem can be overwhelming, and you may worry about the hazard it poses—to your plants, to beneficial insects, or to yourself. In this presentation, Oregon State University's pesticide safety specialist will explain the different oils available for pest control and guide you in selecting and safely using them.

Presenter: Kaci Buhl is an associate professor of practice at Oregon State University. She also coordinates the statewide Pesticide Safety Education Program, educating professional pesticide applicators. On the national level, she is the Deputy Director of the Pesticide Educational Resources Collaborative, which creates pesticide manuals, exams, and other resources for professionals. She studied integrated pest management at Michigan State University and previously coordinated the National Pesticide Information Center.
