A pesticide is a substance or mixture of substances used for preventing, controlling, or lessening the damage caused by a pest. A pesticide may be a chemical substance, biological agent (such as a virus or bacteria), antimicrobial, disinfectant or device used against any pest. Pests include insects, plant pathogens, weeds, mollusks, birds, mammals, fish, nematodes and microbes .

    This book is a comprehensive examination of pesticide use, pesticide harm, and alternatives to harmful pesticides. Levine highlights the role of farming, because a substantial majority percent or more annually--of pesticides are applied in agricultural uses, thereby making their way into the food chain and into the water supply.4/5(1). Most health problems in animals result from exposure to excessive quantities of herbicides because of improper or careless use or disposal of containers. When herbicides are used properly, poisoning problems in veterinary practice are rare. With few exceptions, it is only when animals gain direct access to the product that acute poisoning occurs.

    A pesticide's capacity to harm fish and aquatic animals is largely a function of its (1) toxicity, (2) exposure time, (3) dose rate, and (4) persistence in the environment. Toxicity of the pesticide refers to how poisonous it is. A pesticide poisoning occurs when chemicals intended to control a pest affect non-target organisms such as humans, wildlife, plant or are three types of pesticide poisoning. The first of the three is a single and short-term very high level of exposure which can be experienced by individuals who commit suicide, as well as pesticide formulators.

Pesticide use raises a number of environmental concerns. Over 98% of sprayed insecticides and 95% of herbicides reach a destination other than their target species, including non-target species, air, water and soil.

Pesticide drift occurs when pesticides suspended in the air as particles are carried by wind to other areas, potentially contaminating them. Pesticide toxicity is common in humans as well as in animals.

The common pesticides that cause nephrotoxicity include paraquat, diquat, and zinc phosphide. a Paraquat and diquat. Paraquat is a widely used bipyridyl broad-spectrum herbicide. The. Organophosphate and carbamate pesticides have been well documented to cause acute poisoning in humans in a variety of settings (1,2).

These settings include occupational exposures among pesticide applicators, manufacturing workers and farm workers; accidental inhalation, skin absorption and ingestion, especially by children; and intentional attempts at suicide (1–6).

Pesticide Poisoning in Pets. Thousands of poisonings are reported to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) each year. Many of those reports lack vital information, making it difficult to identify the cause of the problem.

Out of these 3 million pesticide poisoning cases, 2 million are suicide attempts and the rest of these are occupational or accidental poisoning cases (Singh and Mandal, ).

Suicide attempts due to acute pesticide poisoning are mainly the result of widespread availability of pesticides in rural areas (Richter, ; Dawson et al., ).Cited by:   The Pesticide Question: Environment, Economics and Ethics is a book edited by David Pimentel [1] and Hugh Lehman.

Use of pesticides has improved agricultural productivity, but there are also concerns about safety, health and the environment.

Pesticides and Animal Health Animals come into contact with pesticides in many ways: Pets may be exposed when we use pesticides in and around our homes and gardens.; Pesticides are used on pets and livestock to get rid of fleas, ticks and mosquitoes.; Animals may eat mice and rats that were poisoned by pesticides.

Modern pesticides**As used here, the term “pesticides” includes chemicals employed to kill living organisms that are considered pests.

The major groups of pesticides considered here are insecticides, fungicites, and herbicides. The term “pesticide” may also include chemicals used against pests to repel, attract, or interrupt a vital function such as reproduction (sterilants).

Organophosphorus pesticide self-poisoning is a major clinical and public-health problem across much of rural Asia.1–3 Of the estimated deaths from self-harm in the region each year,4 about 60% are due to pesticide poisoning.3 Many studies estimate that organophosphorus pesticides are responsible for around two-thirds of these deaths5—a total Cited by: Guidance on authorisation for pesticides used in Agriculture, Horticulture or the Home Garden (Plant Protection Products).
