The Environmental and Mammalian Safety Profile of Naturalyte Insect Control

P.W. Borth, P.J. McCall, R.F. Bischoff, G.D. Thompson


This is an updated summary of the environmental and toxicological properties of spinosad, the first product in the naturalyte class of insect control products, in relation to expected environmental or human exposure. Safety assessments to a number of environmental endpoints, farm workers and human dietary exposure are presented to demonstrate the large margins of safety associated with the use of this new product in agricultural crops, particularly cotton.
