Finding the right time to spray matters
Spraying in the right weather matters
Rain, heat, cold and wind speed can affect how well your pesticide gets to and remains on your target surfaces.
Pesticide that fails to reach the target surface, or runs off, is wasted. It not only wastes your money but it may also pollute the soil or ground or surface water.
Pesticide that drifts on the wind may contaminate you, any people or animals nearby, or other plants of value.
