For more information about scientific sources in fact sheets, see our page "How does NPIC write fact sheets?"
NPIC fact sheets are designed to answer questions that are commonly asked by the general public about pesticides and pesticide related topics. They are intended to promote informed decision-making about pesticide use.
Ingredient Fact Sheets summarize the current knowledge for a specific pesticide active ingredient.
NPIC discontinued creating and updating technical pesticide fact sheets in 2011. The collection of technical fact sheets will continue to be archived but may contain out-of-date material.
Topic fact sheets provide general information on pesticide-related topics. Topics are selected based on common questions and interests of those contacting NPIC.
