Have You Heard?
By Doris Thomas, Extension Home Economist
Did you know that one of the most common causes of pesticides
accidents is the “empty” container?
In fact, no pesticide container is ever com
pletely empty there is always some active
material clinging to the inner surface.
Burning is not a good method of disposal and
is no longer recommended. The particles and
vapors generated in burning pesticide containers
can pollute the air and endanger people, animals
and plant life. And local ordinances, in some
areas, prohibit the burning of empty pesticide
Under a grant from the Agricultural Re
search Service of the United States Department
of Agriculture, a new prototype of a controlled „ , j,
incinerator is being tested. The Mississippi Agri
cultural Experiment Station scientists, who are thoimaS
conducting the experiment, are also testing to "
find what materials pesticide you choose a pattern with
containers should be made from some detailed design The bulk .
to make possible disposal by __________
“Empty” pesticide containers,
particularly aerosol cans, can
be attractive and dangerous to
children. Many of them have
been picked up on vacant lots,
or from trashcans and used for
their “last squirt.”
Few people will argue the ef
fectiveness or necessity of pesti
cides in agriculture and around
the home. But, pesticides are -
poisons, at least to some degree,
and being highly toxic, present
problems that concern all of us.
Use caution when you dispose
of the empty pesticide contain
ers around your home. If you
live in an area where your trash
is collected and taken to sani
tary landfills, this is the safest
method of disposal.
If you must dispose of trash
on your own property, select a
site that is isolated and protect
ed from accidental entry by
domesticated animals, wildlife

are fun to wear.
But take care to choose the
correct pattern for the fabric
Usually you select a pattern
before you buy the fabric. But
when sewing with fake fur, you
should decide on each before
buying either the pattern or the
Let the fur-like fabric you
choose serve as a guide to the
pattern you choose Usually a
pattern with a simple design
and few seams is best.

available in short pile, medium
high, and deep pile and in a
wide variety of patterns ranging

fur is easier to work with so
