Hi,

An old chest freezer which opens from the top is a very good storage item
for pesticide.

They are all steel outside, have a tub inside that will catch leaks, and
have safety locks to keep people out.

You can always add a hasp and padlock to make them even more secure.

Once the compressor is shot, you can get these babies for free.

Later,
Tom
