Pesticide Safety - Pesticide Residue

Developed by Mark Henderson, Frank Zalom, Mark Bell, and Pat Thompson - International Programs Office UC Davis (2009) "What is Pesticide Residue? Residue is the presence of pesticide that remains on treated surfaces after a period of time. Residues are important in order to achieve pest control. The longer the pesticide exists, the greater the chances for exposure by the targeted pest. However, residues can be harmful if people, animals and wildlife are exposed. "
