Keep pesticides away from plants and wildlife you do not want to treat
Some pesticides are toxic to pollinators, so read the label carefully to determine if there are application timing or other restrictions.A detailed brochure on pollinator protection can bedownloaded from the Coalition for Urban/Rural Environmental Stewardship (www.curesworks.org). Do not spray bird nests when treating trees. Cove outdoor ornamental fishponds (donot allow to overheat).When applying pesticides to food crops and gardens, always check to make sure they are labeled and follow the reentry time and time to harvest waiting period on the label. This varies by pesticide and crop.
