How Do You Use Pesticides?

Before Applying a Pesticide

  1. Pay attention to the label!
  2. Become familiar with all safety precautions.
  3. Know what to do in case of an emergency.
  4. Put on the appropriate PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) (PPE)

 Pesticides can enter the body through the mouth, lungs, skin, and even the eyes. Since the skin is the most vulnerable portion of the body, it is essential to cover as much as possible. Before attempting to open the pesticide bottle, you must wear the proper protective clothing (marked on the label). 

Personal protection equipment includes clothing and other gear worn to shield the body from pesticides and pesticide residues (PPE). As specified on the label, long-sleeved shirts, long pants or overalls, liquid-resistant gloves, rubber boots (not canvas or leather), a cap, goggles, or a dust mist filter are required. Also crucial is the use of a dust mist filter. Unless otherwise instructed, you should wear shirts with long sleeves, long pants, socks, and shoes with closed toes. Before mixing and spraying insecticides, wear protective eyewear or remove your contact lenses, if you wear them. 

Never smoke or consume food while mixing or spraying insecticides or utilising pesticides. Pesticides on the hands are easily transferred to the mouth. Additionally, some herbicides can catch fire. 

Please read the "Usage Instructions" on the package carefully. Any other usage is prohibited.

Do not exceed the recommended dose, and do not use until and until the conditions are met.

Even if the amount is doubled, the task will not be finished in half the time. If you injure yourself, others, or yourself, the plant, region, or animal you're attempting to save could be in jeopardy. 

Pesticides must be mixed or diluted outside in a well-ventilated environment. Always measure out the insecticide according to the instructions on the packaging. Avoid using measuring cups and spoons from the kitchen. 

Do not exceed the specified dosage. Bring only what you will need immediately. Earn a substantial quantity of money. Pesticides deteriorate and lose their potency over time. (For additional information, see "Calculating the Appropriate Amount to Use.") 

Children, pets (including birds and fish), and toys (including toys for pets) should not be in locations where pesticides are combined and stored for at least the time specified on the label. Unless instructed otherwise by the manufacturer, you should wait until the pesticide has dried before returning to the area. 

Garments that have been immersed in pesticide solution or touched by diluted pesticide must be discarded. Change into new, clean clothing and use soap and water to remove any residual insecticide from your skin. 

Pesticides used as baits, such as a feed attractant, are still pesticides and should never be placed indoors or outdoors where children or dogs can access them. Consider utilising pesticides on a limited number of pests to reduce the risk of harming non-target species.
