I am a Clemson University Department of Pesticide Regulation’s Regulatory Specialist Investigator for Beaufort, Jasper, Hampton, Allendale, and Barnwell Counties. I respond to complaints concerning pesticide use that may allege drift or other improper applications. This can include agricultural settings and all types of non-agricultural settings. The Department has a cooperative agreement with EPA for specific programs. I participate with these programs, which include applicator licensing and education, pesticide container recycling, integrated pest management in schools, endangered species protection, worker protection program, ground water protection program, and we enforce SC chemigation law. I am the Department's ISA Certified Arborist.
