Science and Safety

With all the scary headlines linking pollution and pesticides, you might think we were in the Pesticide Dark Ages. On the contrary, pesticide technology has been evolving just like cell phones and the Internet. Long before the Food Quality Protection Act of 1996 (FQPA), newer and safer compounds were being developed to replace the older version of pesticides. Imidacloprid is one of new materials born out of research and is significantly more safe and effective than its predecessors.
