The importance of reading the pesticide label
“Anyone handling a pesticide can be held liable for any unintended consequences that the pesticide may cause,” says Peterson. “Read the label carefully before you purchase the product and each time you are planning an application. Make sure you are willing and able to follow the entire label, and keep the label readily available at all times.”
If you still have questions after reading the label, call the pesticide manufacturer, your Cooperative Extension Service or your State Pesticide Regulatory Agency. Some web resources are listed below.
