This is to avoid direct exposure to the chemicals. When you do the spraying, use thick cloth mask to protect you from the mist that may enter in your nose, especially if the wind is coming towards you. Wear mask during the duration of your spraying activity.

Control your breath when you begin spraying. When you feel pain in your eyes due to its mist, wash it immediately with water for a few minutes. Be sure that extra water is available near you for emergency use.

Never wash your sprayer in the creek or river. It is very dangerous for the residents living there.

For the protection of your children, avoid storing chemicals in your house. Better to placed it to an area away from your house. If you have a shade in your farm, place it in the upper portion under the ceiling.

Eat your meals first before you do the mixing or spraying for your safety. Cover all the kitchen utensils, plates, glass and other related items from the kitchen away from your mixing area.
