Some chemicals used for pest control are extremely toxic, whereas others are only moderately or slightly toxic. It is very important that people involved in the application of pesticides or exposed to them before, during or after application take precautions to protect themselves. When appropriate, wear protective clothing and equipment as directed on the pesticide label, and observe all other directions of safe handling and application of the chemical. Make sure that anyone working with the chemicals or spray equipment knows and understands the potential hazards and has adequate protection.
