Pesticide Label – Dateline: July 2015
Read the pesticide label, why you ask just read the story and lets be safe.
Owners of a Wok restaurant in Sunnybank, Queensland Australia decided to perform pest control on their own. The placed 24 aerosol bombs in their restaurant and BOOM!
“They send up a vapour or an aerosol so what happens is they’re highly explosive so you have to follow the manufacturer’s instructions,” he said.
Just an example is a fogger we use, 6 oz. fogs/treats approximately 5000 cubic feet of unobstructed space 25′ x 25′ x 8′. Now just for the record I want to explain how and why we might use a fogging device.
- Very seldom do I use a fogger and usually only on flying insects. My opinion is that it might drive the bugs deeper into walls and hiding areas.
- Depending on circumstances placement is essential to functionality.
- Lets use an example of German roaches, if you treat the area with a liquid first and get the roaches running a final step might be a fogger.
- Read and follow all label directions.
