All pesticides are toxic. Toxicity times exposure equals risk. Some pesticide labels require the use of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). This protects the handler from poisonings when mixing, loading and applying pesticides. Improperly handling pesticides increases the level of risk because the exposure level increases. Read and follow the directions on the pesticide label to protect the user and derive the most benefit from the pesticide.
