Protecting Wildlife from Pesticides

Wildlife may come in contact with pesticides in many ways. They can be exposed if they touch treated areas, eat treated plants, or drink contaminated water. Hidden nests or young may also be directly exposed to pesticides during an application. Pesticides that destroy habitat or food can also affect wildlife.

How can you protect wildlife when using pesticides?

If you have questions about pesticides, 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.
