Pesticide Use Policy and Pesticide Application Notice

UW–Madison policy requires pesticide applicators to notify Physical Plant Customer Service prior to using any pesticide. Applicators are also required to notify faculty, staff, students, and visitors of their pesticide use by reasonable and effective means. The University’s pesticide use policy encourages best management practices to maximize the effectiveness and safety of pesticide use, while minimizing environmental impact. UW uses herbicides and fertilizers as a tool within the Integrated Plant Management Program to help promote healthy turf, landscape displays, and diverse biological communities in our natural areas. Pesticides are also used selectively to control invasive plant species within the Lakeshore Nature Preserve and promote the growth of native plants. A listing of the products used can be found on the Environment, Health & Safety website at
