Understanding some pesticides

Hi, Our HOA recently applied some weed control products on our turf. Specifically, the two products were called Dimension Specialty Herbicide and Tri-Power Selective Herbicide. We have young children and a dog who play on the grass. Can you tell me how soon it will be safe to be barefoot on the grass?

Pesticides and pollinators

Many people think that neonicitinoids are killing off all the pollinators. They have been banned in Europe so that must prove it, right? I hear that quite often. What is the state of research on this topic? What is the unbiased opinion?

Detecting Herbicides/ Pesticides?

My name is Kelly Kepler and I am a junior in the IB program. I am writing my extended essay this year (a 4000 word essay on any topic) and I was hoping to look at how pH can affect the chemical degradation of pesticides/herbicides. I have been struggling with choosing a specific chemical to test, as there are many limitations with the equipment I have access to! I was wondering which herbicides/pesticides it would be easiest to do this with, and how I could possibly go about testing decomposition?

Pesticides For Veggie Garden

Hello, we live in the Morningside area of Sioux City. Is there a safe pesticide that can be used for a small backyard vegetable garden? We once tried a tomato garden about 5 years ago without any pesticides & all the tomatoes were filled with white worms. We’re planning on attempting another garden with tomatoes, bell peppers, spicy peppers etc. this spring as a family project with our 3 year old twins.

Pesticides in my food

Is there a science based publication that explains the amounts and the health risks of pesticides in the food in grocery stores in two groups, organically produced and non-organically produced? I looked under Extension publications and did not find anything, perhaps I just missed it.

Garden Safety Regarding Pesticides

We have our home treated every three months for ants, etc. by a pest control service. This is usually done with a spray along the foundation of the house, spray on the deck posts and granules at their base. I would like to plant a garden in the yard near the house, but my wife is concerned that rain will wash pesticides from the treatments into the soil and contaminate the crops. How far away do I need to put the garden to prevent any risk? Thanks.
