Pesticides and Herbicides

Barbara says, ‘” To obtain good scientific information about a specific  pesticide, which of course includes insecticides, herbicides. and the other ‘cides’ go to Google, enter Northwest Center for Alternatives to Pesticides. (NCAP );
Click on “Pesticide Fact Sheets” and there you will find an alphabetical listing, from which you can choose–
Each pesticide has a succinct summary, followed by detailed scientific information , well  researched and documented  by  Caroline Cox, formerly of the NCAP staff.
Her excellent information can stand up in court, or in editorials.  I have often made good use of this resource myself.”
