Abstract Pesticides are widely used throughout the United States in the home environment and such usage may result in several environmental and human problems. Since household members may fail to read and fully understand the label instructions, misuse and overuse of the often potentially toxic compounds may precede contamination of small sectors of the surrounding ecosystem and accidental poisoning of man and animals. In the United States, only limited information has been available regarding the quantities of pesticides applied by householders relative to other sources of use. To date, the most extensive survey of pesticide usage was completed in 1974 and focused on only 25 selected compounds. This report presents the results of a national household pesticide usage study.
