Indoor Air and Pesticides

People spend the majority of their time indoors at home, school, and at work. Research indicates low levels of pesticides are present in the air of many homes. This may be caused by using pesticides indoors and/or by contaminated dust, dirt and air entering the home from outside.

How can I reduce the amount of pesticides in my indoor air?

When controlling weeds and other lawn pests, these steps may reduce pesticide residue in your home, school or office.

If you have questions about this, or any pesticide-related topic, please call NPIC at 1-800-858-7378 (8:00am - 12:00pm PST), or email us at npic@ace.orst.edu.
