Safe Storage Solutions for Pesticides
Always store pesticides in cool, dry, areas that are well ventilated and protected from unauthorized access. Extreme temperatures can change the chemical components of some pesticides rendering them ineffective. In certain cases, it causes the chemicals to be more harmful to plants, animals, water sources, and people. Temperature-controlled storage helps maintain a compliant storage atmosphere for your inventory. Mechanical ventilation can decrease internal temperatures and help eliminate toxic fumes or dusts that pesticides or other chemicals can give off while being stored or handled.
Good housekeeping practices is important for safely storing pesticides. A dry and completely enclosed pesticide storage building is necessary. Large quantities of pesticide storage can be very dangerous to handle and store, therefore proper containment and maintenance is required.
