Risks of Garden Chemical Products

Risks of garden chemical products for humans, bees, birds, fish, worms and other organisms are important in deciding if you want to use those products to address weeds, pests and disease.  Or you may decide to use lower risk non-chemical better choices.

WiseGardening rates products on the basis of publicly available scientific data on their ingredients’ properties and on other product features. It cannot fully take account of your use of products i.e. how much you use in a particular location, if you spill it on the ground or yourself, if it is degraded or becomes more concentrated by evaporation during storage.  Full details of rating methods are HERE
