I am familiar with the elements of pesticide product labels and am able to understand what they mean.
When using a pesticide I always read and follow the product label including but not limited to any weather condition restrictions.
When using a pesticide I make sure that the pesticide states that it can be used in the geographical area stated on the label.
When disposing of pesticides or pesticide containers, I always follow the product label.
When handling any pesticide, I always use the personal protective equipment stated on the product label.
