||Homeowners are participating in a three year study to measure the migration and transport of lawn-applied herbicide acids 2,4-D (2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid) and dicamba into the home, the spatial distribution of these residues in the home, and the temporal profile of exposures of residents to these residues. Associated activity patterns that are being considered in the study design as contributing factors for transport and exposure include homeowner vs commercial application, activity levels of children and pets, and wearing vs removal and outdoor shoes indoors. Sample types being collected include air, surface wipes, and urine. All sample types are collected pre- and post-application, over two one-week periods at each home. Studies have included eight occupied and two unoccupied homes.
