Why You Shouldn’t Apply Pesticides Yourself

Pesticides are great for killing bugs and keeping your yard looking green, but you should always hire a professional to apply those pesticides in your yard or other lawn space. Applying pesticides yourself can be risky and most people do not know how to apply them properly. Here are several reasons why you shouldn’t apply pesticides yourself.

Pesticides are Harmful to the Skin

If you do not have the proper protective gear, pesticides can be very harmful to the skin. Having contact with your unprotected nose, mouth and face can cause allergic reactions, rashes and breathing problems. Exposing yourself to pesticides isn’t necessary when you can hire a professional and keep the risk to a minimum.

Proper Cleanup is Essential

Proper cleanup after applying pesticides is essential. If you do not properly clean up, harsh chemicals can remain on the surface of the area and can harm kids and pets. Also, the equipment you use to apply the pesticides can be damaged if it isn’t cleaned properly. To avoid all of this complication, you should simply hire a professional to apply the pesticides.

Tricky Timing

The effectiveness of the pesticides can depend on when you spray them. There is a science because of how pesticides work and professionals know all about this. If you spray the pesticides at the wrong time, they may not work properly and all your time and money will go to waste. If you hire a pesticide professional, you won’t have to worry about this at all.

Kids and Pets

If you have kids and pets, you should not apply pesticides around them at all. It is best to hire a professional team and leave the dirty work for them. If children or pets breathe in pesticides, it can be really harmful towards them. Young children are much more sensitive than adults. Pets are low to the ground, breathing close to the grass, and can breathe in whatever chemicals are there. To keep them safe, hire a professional to apply your pesticides.
