The document provides the findings of a national survey on pesticide use in and around the home, and is sponsored by EPA. The Agency's Office of Pesticide Programs (OPP) performs risk/benefit analyses for home and garden pesticide registrations that will be better informed using the survey data. Survey data on frequency of use and safety precautions will be used in risk assessments. Data on pests and sites treated and on consumer satisfaction will be used in benefit analyses. The survey is in three parts. The volume contains the executive summary, the results, and recommendations. It covers population characteristics, pesticide storage and disposal, pest control, safety, statistical analysis, sampling design, and data collection instruments.
