EPA has a published a new website on pesticide drift.  This site includes an “Introduction to Pesticide Drift”; explains “what EPA is doing to reduce drift”; and explains how to “report pesticide drift problems.”

EPA states on this site that

“Pesticide spray drift is the movement of pesticide dust or droplets through the air at the time of application or soon after, to any site other than the area intended. Pesticide droplets are produced by spray nozzles used in application equipment for spraying pesticides on crops, forests, turf and home gardens. Some other pesticides are formulated as very fine dry particles (commonly referred to as dust formulations).”
