Pesticides and Herbicides

HotlineLogoPesticides and herbicides can cause a serious poisoning problem. Often these chemicals are breathed in through the lungs, absorbed in the skin and in the case of a child they may be ingested. Children and pets sometimes play on the floor of the garage where pesticides are stored or on the lawn where pesticides have been recently applied.  Call the Arkansas Poison & Drug Information Center if you think a child has gotten into a pesticide or herbicide or if you just have a question about a possible poisoning situation.
