Pesticide selection

Considering that thousands of products are classified as pesticides and sold through lawn and garden centers, hardware retailers and even grocery stores, how do you decide which one to use?

Many pesticides are designed specifically to target only certain types of pests; this makes identification of the problem the critical first step in deciding to use a pesticide. Once the pest is properly identified, selection of a pesticide may be possible. When you visit your retailer to purchase a pesticide for your pest problem, check product labels to see if your particular pest is listed as one that the product will control. The importance of reading the label can’t be overemphasized. Never assume that a product will control a certain pest that is not listed on its label.

For example, if you wish to control dandelions in your lawn, be sure that the product claims “dandelions” on its label. If it does not, the risk of the product failing falls upon you and not the retailer or the manufacturer of the product.

In many instances, you may have more than one product choice to control your problem. If so, don’t necessarily choose on the basis of cost alone, but also consider products that may be more environmentally friendly, less harmful to beneficial organisms, and perhaps easier to use.
