Pesticides often have a negative connotation. While it is certainly important to note that pesticides can have a harmful effect on a person’s health, they are very regularly used in many everyday situations. Simple weed killing sprays are, in fact, registered as pesticides.
In any case, this post is not to tell you whether or not to use pesticides at your home or business. This post is to give you some basic suggestions about using them safely.
Since the application of most pesticides involves spraying, there’s a good chance that droplets can find themselves in places where you don’t want them. To avoid that, try not to spray pesticide products on windy days, and wear protective clothing to keep it from becoming absorbed in your skin or inhaled. When storing pesticides, it may be a good idea to place them on a high shelf or in a locked cabinet. This will help keep children safe and may lessen other incidents involving pesticides.
