Health Tip of the Day

Tips for Safe Use of Garden Chemicals

  • Identify the problem (Is it a weed? Is it an insect?) and buy the right product for the problem. Buy only what you need, not extra.

  • Wear rubber gloves, long sleeves, long pants and eye protection. You may need a respirator, hat or shoes.

  • Follow warnings on the container for safe use. Read the label to find out any first aid instructions.

  • Use separate spray systems for herbicides and pesticides so residues don't mix.

  • Never carry a pesticide in your car's passenger area or next to food in the trunk.

  • Store chemicals in original containers and out of reach of children and pets to avoid the possibility of poisoning.

  • Take special care when mixing pesticide. Have another adult nearby in case of accident. Follow label directions precisely. Mix in a well-ventilated area.

  • When you finish, wash your clothes (not with other clothing) in hot water with strong detergent. Take a hot shower; wash your hair.
