The environment includes all of the living and non-living things that surround us, including the air, water, plants, soil and wildlife. Pesticides can be helpful in dealing with pests in our environment such as controlling invasive plant species that threaten native habitats. Pesticides have risks to the environment too, especially when they are used improperly.
