If you see anyone spraying pesticides in today's conditions please report the activity.
Tip of the day!
The body can take in pesticides many ways. One way is through skin exposure. Pesticides can be absorbed more readily through broken skin such as a cut, scrape, or abrasion. The longer the pesticide remains on the skin the more the body will absorb. The skin absorbs pesticides at different rates depending on the area of the body. Pesticides are absorbed more quickly through the skin covering the armpits, small of the back, genitals and any area where sweating or moisture occurs.
