Going Green in the field of pesticides … Not quite as hard as we thought it might be…

We all have seen so many companies all over the world using chemicals which are banned. We all remember the DDT pesticides that used Arsenic and Lead. Some insecticides have been banned due to the fact that they are persistent toxins which have adverse effects on animals and/or humans. An oft-quoted case is that of DDT, an example of a widely used (and maybe misused) pesticide, which was brought to public attention by Rachel Carson‘s book, Silent Spring. One of the better known impacts of DDT is to reduce the thickness of the egg shells on predatory birds. The shells sometimes become too thin to be viable, causing reductions in bird populations.

This occurs with DDT and a number of related compounds due to the process of bioaccumulation, wherein the chemical, due to its stability and fat solubility, accumulates in organisms’ fatty tissues. Also, DDT may biomagnify, which causes progressively higher concentrations in the body fat of animals farther up the food chain. The near-worldwide ban on agricultural use of DDT and related chemicals has allowed some of these birds, such as the peregrine falcon, to recover in recent years. A number of the organochlorine pesticides have been banned from most uses worldwide, and globally they are controlled via the Stockholm Convention on persistent organic pollutants. These include: aldrinchlordaneDDTdieldrinendrinheptachlormirex and toxaphene.

We use insecticides called Systemic insecticides which are incorporated by treated plants. Insects ingest the insecticide while feeding on the plants. Some of our products include concentrations of Acetemprid, emamectine, chlorepyrofos
