Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) for various chemicals For Your Safety when using Insecticide and Pesticide
Posted 14 November 2008 - 01:30 AM
Looks like most of us are concern on the health of the plants by
giving them chemicals to grow
giving chemicals to kill insect or pests.
But the chemical safety awareness to us might not be noticable.
Till date I noticed like how good is good.but little or none is touch on how safe is safe.
What about setting up a post on Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) of various chemicals? (i.e malathion)
I believe that this will help the users to understand better on the chemicals that they are embarking on.
Can you (all forummers) list down the chemicals that you are using?
Maybe I can help to find the MSDS to the chemical that you are currently using.
Is this the right place to post this thread?

Glad it helps! Help to spread the word ok? That is what I advise to my neigbours, and if they refuse, I poiltely told to use the chemicals when I am not around.
(I have seen some funny ppl after applying malathion and immediately shut off their windows and doors. And initially I am one of them!! Now no more this stupid action from me)
And these comes with factual approach.
I do wish to see this thread becomes a Sticky and do wish that there is a warning statement on the Section like For your Safety, Please read this blar blar thread before embarking on usage of any chemicals.
Maybe someone can offer to support to make this come true.
The awareness is still not there!
Look at the thread view counts (minus off my posting Vs the number of members(active?). there are ppl still using chemical without knowledge MSDS.

so upset to see ppl associate with chemicals yet do not know what is MSDS.
This is not ignorant as this is alien to most of us. (Just like is earth flat or round in the early days)
This is due to lack of awareness.
Just ike AIDS awareness. Correct me if I am wrong.

It is not cheap to create MSDS, becuase the product requires to go through a series of analytical test to so those verification and validation.
It is governed by LAW. Not the surname Mr LAW but the LAW.
Therefore it is created for the manufacturers, transporters, doctors and end users to get to know the product well.
To be short and sweet,
For those ppl who can think logically, good for them. but this group of ppl do not know the full characteristic of the chemical until their read the MSDS.
For those ppl who are easy going, please read the relevant MSDS before buying it.
Hope you are healthy.
Hope ppl living around you do not touch and smell that nice smelling flowers of yours! Especially after the chemical application.
You are safe but not the ppl around you.

You can use hydrogen peroxide or isopropyl alcohol to act as fungicides, however do note they are for fungal attack uses and not as a long-term fungicide.

The MSDS for Neem oil is a blank page. I want to read up on that as I have just recommended it. Eeeps! is it safe?
Posted 19 November 2008 - 09:41 PM
Just checked on the link. It is working. :)/> Total 4 pages.
go to search engine and key in MSDS Neem oil. You shall be benefited.
On another note:
"Neem oil itself" is safe.
However, different "Neem oil product" behaves different,
having said that, it depends on the "Neem oil product formulation".
Generally a chemical product should comes with its own MSDS.
