Precautions to take when using Worm force Insecticide
- Wearing protective clothing when applying pesticides is a must. This includes a long-sleeve shirt, long pants, shoes, socks, rubber or neoprene gloves, protective eye gear and a respirator or dust mask when necessary. Clothing exposed to pesticides should be washed in detergent and hot water.
- It is advised to find the correct applicator. The label on the applicator will provide specific instructions. These applicators include compressed-air sprayers, trombone sprayers, hose-end sprayers and hand- dusters. A cultivator should have separate sprayer equipment for herbicides and insecticides. Herbicide residues in a sprayer used to apply insecticides or fungicides may damage plants.
- Only the required amount of a pesticide should be prepared to complete the job. Mixing exposes the applicator to the most concentrated form of the pesticide. Carefully measure concentrates with measuring spoons or cups reserved and labelled for that use only. No chemicals should be mixed together unless the label says they are specifically compatible.
- If more pesticide is mixed than that which is needed, it should be applied to plants that are on the label. Never pour a pesticide down the drain or storm sewer. Rinse the sprayer with freshwater, applying the rinse water to plants that are listed on the label. A second and third rinse is recommended.
