Insecticide and Herbicide Chemical Labels

Post  camprn on 5/19/2012, 10:14 pm

Agricultural Chemical label information <~~~CLICK

A most excellent information link!

If you use chemicals in your garden or yard, please read and follow all label directions.

Even if you've used the chemical before, always read the label when you get a new bottle(or go online and look up that label if the bottle is old, like from last season).

And no, I'm not e-stalking you cmprn tongue

Also, if you're mixing chemicals into secondary containers, it's actually part of federal (US) law that you properly label all secondary containers, keep them secure, and dispose of unused chemicals and empty containers in accordance with the label instructions. Otherwise, it's considered a label violation!

Reading Chemical labels properly

Post  david_benett on 1/17/2013, 4:30 am

Reading labels is very important for your health. Sometimes the product contains substances like diethanolamine (DEA) and triethanolamine (TEA) that can react with nitrites and form nitrosamines which is a cancer-causing substance and is easily absorbed through the skin. So you should look out for such ingredients by carefully reading the labels.

Re: Insecticide and Herbicide Chemical Labels

Post  Pollinator on 1/17/2013, 9:39 am

One of the things most often missed by pesticide applicators is the bee protection directions, that are listed under "Environmental Hazards" on insecticide labels. It's surprising how often people spray fruit trees while in bloom (or with blooming clover underneath), or dust Sevin on blooming garden plants. While it's unlikely that anyone would be routinely cited for this violation, if someone complains - say a neighboring beekeeper who has a kill - one could be cited for pesticide misuse AND be liable for the damages to the beekeeper's bees. See http://pollinator.com/pesticides/flowchart.htm for a flow chart to simplify complying with bee protection directions.

That said, it's an unwise thing to do, anyway, because poisoning your pollinators is actually biting the hand that feeds you. Damages may not be noticed, it may even be wild bees doing the job, but the damage is done nevertheless, and it will be to the detriment of your garden pollination.

Please ALWAYS READ AND FOLLOW ALL LABEL DIRECTIONS of any product used in the yard and garden. It is worth reading the warning labels to the very last sentence.
