Use poison with
Rustenburg – Most of us has gone to the general store for pesticide. We look for the label showing the pest we want to kill, grab it and go.
Once you get home, you scan through the mixing instructions and before you know it you are a self-proclaimed pest exterminator.
Not fully reading the safety instruction can be very dangerous and, in some cases, even deadly. In one instance earlier this year a couple from Koster used poison for cockroaches in their home. According to the husband they used a product containing Phototoxin. They eventually went to bed, but the wife never woke up and the husband was admitted to hospital.
A case was also recently reported where criminals attempted to poison dogs. The owner managed to get to the poison before her beloved pets and even used gloves to pick it up and dispose of it. She still managed to be exposed resulting in her being hospitalised.
It is extremely important that you read the warning label of any poison carefully before you proceed and that you follow it step for step. Not all poisons are the same and the safety precautions that are sufficient for the one might not be for the other. When dealing with two-step (being used to kill dogs), pick it up with a tool and bury it.
