Types of PESTICIDES and their purpose
*Remember to ALWAYS read the labels for application.
Rule of Thumb
- Pesticides that are intended specifically for use in the HOME garden are packaged in small quantities i.e. PINTS, QUARTS, and OUNCES, and contain a low concentration of the active ingredient
- Products packets for agriculture and PROFESSIONAL/COMMERCIAL use may appear to be less expensive but are MORE TOXIC and the active ingredients are highly concentrated. They are also difficult to mix correctly since the rates are usually given on a per ACRE basis
