Pesticides should never be your first response to a pest outbreak, but if you must use them you need to understand the pesticide label.

The information on a pesticide label represents the research and development that a pesticide has undergone before reaching the consumer.

Always read a pesticide product’s label before purchase to ensure it is the product you need. The label also contains directions for proper use that should always be followed.

When mixing a pesticide, follow the label directions so you have the correct pesticide concentration. The label will also tell you the correct application rate and the necessary personal protective equipment.
