Quick, Henry, WAIT! Pesticides ore a boon to mm and have sared tfnai- onds of Ihres and prevented millions of illnesses says the Agriculture Department. But they ore also 6ao- gerous if used indiscriminately. Improper spraying has brought death to fish, birds, wildlife and people. In case of occidentol contact with pest-killing poiMn, tfca skin should be washed immediately with soap and wo> ter. Eyes hit by spray require flushing wth water for 15 minutes.

Wosh Fruits and Vegetables Even thoBoh most fruits and vegetables are free of poisonous residue, you should wash thera thoroughly before eating. Few helpful tips on weed control Chemical compounds for killing weeds are in two broad categories: selective aad son-selective. Tlie selective types kUl weeds bat do not injure desir-| able plants when used as spec i&ed. Non-selecUve types kill all kinds of vegetation. The latter has some advantages: cheaper, more available and more effective. But where crops or garden plants are involved, the selective kinds must be used. One of the most effective and lowest cost non-selective weed killers is diesel fuel oil. This isn't to be confused with automotive diesel oil or Diesel No. 1, which are more highly refined and less toxic to plants. Diesel fuel oil may be used most effectively in open areas such as mider trees, on vacant lots, along roadways, fence^ lines, parking areas and along, drainage ditches. It kills grasses and all kinds of weeds Use diesel oil in a sprayer of any she suitable to the job. It is used straight, without any dUution. All surface areas of the plants to be killed must be covered thoroughly with enough material being applied to run down into the crown of the plant. Other non-selective weed kill ers are smudge-pot oil, stove oil, kerosene distUlate and certain low-grad oils. Petroleum manufacturers have developed some of their waste products with other materials toxic to plants and call them Weed Oils. Tliese are especially effective in destroying such hard to kail grasses as Bermuda grass and Johnson grass. Selective weed killers are such compounds as 2,4-D and 2,4,5-T. These will kill only cer- tarn broad leaved plants but won't harm grasses. And a chemical called dowpon will kill grasses only and won't harm broad leaved plants. These selective weed killers zRedlands Daily facta Friday, Apr. 17, 1964-13 must be used with extreme caution because of then: long range of toxicity. For example, a strong gust of wind at the wrong time can carry killing spray drifts.for several hund-, red feet. The selective killers are to be mixed with water, and should be tised in sprayers not nsed Ifor any other purpose because even minutes amounts when mixed with insecticides can prove toxic to certain plants. Follow the printed directions on the labels exactly. CHEMICAL CbNTROU Unfortunately, few of us art perfect gardeners, so we need to use chemicals for disease and pest control occasionally. But it is important for the long range good of the garden not to overdo a good thing.
