Comparison of published LD50 or LC50 levels for a variety of insecticides in several vertebrate species indicate that a wide range of toxicity levels exist, and these cannot be easily predicted within either a chemical group or within a species. There is a relatively limited data base documenting interactions between insecticides and other chemicals, either agricultural or non-agricultural; however, the fact that all major insecticide groups perturb nervous system function as their primary… CONTINUE READING
