Honest answers to your questions about pesticides
Q: How safe are pesticides used by professionals?
A: If pesticides are handled and applied with care according to label directions, they do not represent a risk to people, non-target organisms or the environment. Each pesticide has met the safety testing standards established by the EPA.
Q: Do pesticide application harm dogs and cats?
A: No, not if the label instructions are followed properly. All pesticides are carefully tested before they can be registered by the EPA and are sold. Part of this testing includes determining possible effects on non-target organisms, such as pets.
Q: How do we know that these products aren't harmful to humans or wildlife?
A: The pesticide industry is one of the most highly regulated industries in the United States. Before a product is registered by the EPA, it must be rigorously tested for human health and environmental safety. This process can tackle up to 10 years and involve up to 120 different tests and studies. Today, manufacturers may invest as much as $150 to $185 million or more in product safety testing before a new pesticide ever comes to the market. These safety tests are required, designed and reviewed by EPA scientists and are conducted according to EPA standards.
