FMC Reintroduces Videos Showing Proper Application

Supplier News

The three videos show proper guidelines for liquid pesticide applications and demonstrate how to apply Talstar Professional Insecticide.

| August 1, 2014

PHILADELPHIA — FMC Corporation is reintroducing three videos showing proper guidelines for liquid pesticide applications and demonstrating how to apply Talstar Professional Insecticide. The videos take viewers step-by-step through applications of Talstar  for outdoor spot and perimeter treatments, as well as indoor applications. 

Now live on the FMC YouTube Pest channel, “How to Properly Apply Liquid Pesticides” and “How to Properly Apply Talstar Professional Insecticide” are each three minutes long. A six-minute version incorporating both videos is also live on the FMC Pest YouTube site at: http://bit.ly/1rLSXZ7.   

"Safety serves as the backbone of FMC’s culture," says Lauren Wilson, technical service representative for FMC and a certified pest management professional.  “Every day I answer questions from customers about how to apply our insecticides, herbicides and fungicides.  I always tell them, there are certain guidelines to follow when using any product.    

"Since Talstar Professional Insecticide is among the most widely used insecticides, we wanted to encourage product stewardship by showing the correct way to apply the product,” adds Wilson.     

In the videos, she clearly demonstrates how to prepare for an outdoor application, including removing all pets, toys and people from the area. She then shows:
•    proper personal protective equipment (PPE) when making an application
•    how to prepare for an indoor application
•    proper storage of pesticides
•    how to prepare for an accidental spill    

In the application demonstration video, she shows how to mix and spray Talstar Professional Insecticide both indoors and outdoors.
