Pesticide poisoning

Pesticide poisonings, where chemicals intended to control a pest affect non-target organisms such as humans, wildlife, or bees.

Since label directions required by the FIFRA are specifically designed to protect applicators and other humans, wildlife, and other environmental resources; the majority of pesticide poisonings result from violations of the label directions
