The Home Owner's Guide to reading a Pesticide Label I have found there needs to be some education on the correct use of pesticides in the garden and lawn. I have seen things that are being done that could posst"oly affect peoples' health. I cannot stress enough that you need to read and follow the di- reetiom on the label for the safe application of a It is illegal to use a product without a la- bel. That is how important the label is! The first thing you need to determine is if this product is labeled for the use, you intend. On the label, it will tell you where you can apply this prod- uct. Some herbicides kill broadleafweeds, some kill grass and some kill everything. It is important to understand what it does. On each label, it will tell you what insects, weeds and diseases this prod- uct will control or protect. This is also on the la- bel. It does absolutely no good to use a product on a pest it is not labeled for. Most often, you will not get any control. It will also tell you the rate you should use and how and when to apply the prod- uct. It also will tell you what kind of clothing or protective equipment you most ,use when apply- ing this product and the pre-harvest interval for veg- etable or fruit harvest. Everylhing you need to know is on the label and if you do not understand some- thing call someone who can help you to understand it. I might qualify as one of those. Before you start, I want you to take this pledge. I will read and follow the label to the best of my ability. I will protect myself and my fami- ly from exposure. I will not spray in flip-flops and shorts. I will watch the wind and not drift on my neighbors. I will keep children, family and pets off the treated areas until it is safe to allow them ac- cess. I will always follow the label over a neigh- bor's advice to ignore some parts of it. I will be a good,applicator and good steward of my envi= : ronment.
