Read the Label

If you use pesticides, please make sure you are using them properly and sparingly – THE LABEL on the container IS THE LAW!

Read the label.

Today's environmental tip: Read the label! You might not realize it, but on a pesticide container, the label is the law. Pesticide product labels provide critical safety information for handling and use. Pesticides are powerful substances, but when used according to the label they are safe and effective. So … always use pesticides safely, at home or in the field. Always read the label.
