Expert Response

If you feel like you are sick from pesticide exposure, you should seek medical attention. If you have the old pesticide container - you should take the label with you to the doctor or ER. If you have general questions about pesticides and know which pesticide you are concerned about - I would recommend you call the National Pesticide Hotline at Oregon State University 1.800.858.7378
