Some Pesticides Can Look Like Food


You can see why it might not be a good idea (and it’s illegal) to bring a pesticide home in any kind of container commonly used for food or drink. The two jars with black caps contain herbicides. The other glass containers have apple juice. Can you tell the difference? Could a child? The herbicide was confiscated. Several times per year, we discover situations like this. How many more times does it happen? Don't let it happen in your home! Pesticides must be kept in containers with appropriate labels.
