Post subject:  Effects of Pesticides on Wildlife

Pesticides' effects on wildlife may be lethal, sublethal, acute, chronic, habitat related, or there may be no effect. In general the risk a pesticide poses to wildlife is related to the pesticide type, its toxicity, the proximity of the application to wildlife habitat, the dose, application rate, number of applications, the persistence of the pesticide in the environment, and its ability to concentrate in the wildlife food chain. These factors interact with food habits and behavior of individual wildlife species to produce a response.
