We are watching Hurricane Florence very closely and hope that all of our members stay safe during this coming storm.
We hope that all of our members are taking precautions now to prepare for the hurricane both at home and at work. Below are some items to remember as you prepare your workplaces and your homes for the storm.
- High and Dry: Store all pesticides in locations that are elevated above ground level and will not be impacted by floods. Place them on higher shelves or elevated off the ground with masonry blocks if needed.
- Airtight Storage: Place all pesticides--especially granular pesticides or those found in non-waterproof containers--in watertight storage containers. Plastic containers or trash bags that are sealed tight can also work.
Our thoughts are with everyone affected by this storm, and we hope everyone stays safe in the coming days.
