Why is Carbofuran bad for the environment?



  1. 0 Votes

    Carbofuran is pesticide that is highly toxic to both people and wildlife.  According to the American Bird Conservancy, after the banning DDT and diledrin in the United States, carbofuran presented the greatest threat to bird populations of any commonly used pesticide in the country.  Carbofuran residues also have potential to harm consumers, and workers in crop fields where the chemical has been sprayed.  Accordingly, the US Environmental Protection Agency made a decision in 2006 to phase out the use of carbofuran – a process that this year is still moving forward.  Eliminating carbofuran from agricultural use in this country is a great victory for both wildlife and human health.
