Are pesticides really safe?

May 04, 2018

Pesticide Toxicity is measured using an equation called LD-50.  The higher the number, the lower the toxicity.  Most pesticides have an LD-50 of between 2,000 and 5,000.  Pesticides are not edible, but by comparison, table salt has an LD-50 of 3,000.

In the end, pesticides can be very beneficial when used in the proper amount to control harmful pests.  When in doubt, call the Experts at Pratt Pest Control at 360-629-7378.
