Tribal Pesticides Contacts

Emergencies

A Circuit Rider Program is an innovative approach to reach and assist multiple tribes. The R10 Circuit Rider consists of a pesticide inspector at the Coeur d'Alene Tribe who provides multiple tribes (those listed below) with pesticide enforcement, outreach, and education.

Confederated Tribes and Bands of the Yakama Indian Nation of the Yakama Reservation
  Indian Health Service Integrated Pest Management Program

The Indian Health Service is offering a program which provides free pest and pesticide consultations and technical assistance to tribes in WA, OR, and ID. In partnership with the tribe, IHS will conduct pest management and pesticide risk assessments to determine 1) what and where the problems or risks may be; and 2) what is the most efficient and safest way to address those problems or risks. Target sites may include any number of indoor or outdoor areas.

The goal of the program is to reduce the health risks and the environmental impacts of pesticides through the promotion and eventual adoption of Integrated Pest Management.
