Realistically, even the best tended gardens will succumb periodically to pest or bacterial invasions. When the first line of defense fails (such as picking or washing off bugs, slug hunts at night, and removing infected foliage), one often resorts to chemical control. Whether using organic solutions or conventional products, please use the correct amount of product in each application. Using too much or too little can result in damaged plants, injuring or killing beneficial insects, or harming the larger environment. Our glass measuring cup, marked for tablespoons, teaspoons, milliliters, and ounces, is easy to read, washable, and the perfect size for measuring out most garden chemicals. Store it with your garden supplies, and we hope you'll rarely need to use it.
