Do I need a certificate of competence to purchase a professional pesticide? (weed killer, fungicide, plant protection)
No, you do not need a certificate of competence to purchase a professional pesticide such as weed killer. Anybody is able to purchase them. However the individual that applies a pesticide professionally must have a National Proficency Test Council qualification. However if that individual is working within ‘sight and sound’ of a person who has that particular qualification. For example, for knapsack spraying it would require a PA1, PA6 (City of Guilds or Lantra NPTC Qualification) For boom spraying it would require PA1, PA2 (City of Guilds or Lantra NPTC Qualification).
Should you have any specific queries on what qualification you may require don’t hesitate by emailing us on firstname.lastname@example.org
Is my pesticide, weed killer, safe around children, pets and other animals?
How long will my pesticides last in the bottle?
Pesticides on a whole don’t have a sell by date. However once they are opened, they must be kept away from frost and cold adverse weather conditions, but then they should last for a number of years. Some pesticides lose the approval for use, so if you haven’t used them for a long time you should first check, to make sure they have not lost their approval for use as carrying on using them would not be permitted. You can also contact us via email and we can give you advice too. Storing a pesticide that you have mixed and diluted will start to reduce efficiency over a period of time. So we recommend mixing the correct amount of product that you need to carry out a certain job, and also mixing the pesticides as close as possible to actually carrying out that particular job to ensure that you get the maximum results.
How do I know what the dilution rates are for each product?
The dilution rates for all pesticides are on the product labels, and must always be read first before use. If you are at all uncertain, please seek professional advice.

Why are delivery rates a lot more than other deliveries for smaller regular parcels?
There are certain restrictions and legislation that we must comply with as we are sending out Pesticides. This all depends on the weight and toxicity of the product we are sending. All packaging complies with the current legislation by showing the quantity, UN Numbers, Packing group and Class. As they are pesticides being sent by our ADR and limited quantity couriers, it is the explanation to why the shipping costs are more expensive compared to other packages.
