The Container Matters
Pesticides should be stored in their original containers. The original container is designed to protect the product and it's made of materials that will withstand the chemicals in the product.
The original container also has the appropriate lid/cap to protect kids and pets.
Extremes in temperature can change the chemistry of some pesticides inside the container.
Extremes in temperature can also damage containers.
Always read the label for storage instructions. As a general rule, pesticides are best stored between 40-90 °F.
Designate a place that is only used for pesticide storage.
Keep pesticides away from food, feed and flames.
Choose a location away from ponds, streams and drinking water wells.
Try to keep your pesticide inventory as low as possible. Buy only what you need this season; mix only what you need today.
Dispose of unwanted pesticides properly rather than storing them.
Never store pesticides in food or drink containers.
Consider storing bottles inside a larger container that could contain liquids in the event of a leak or spill.
