At first, you may think you don't have pesticides in your home. But when you take a closer look you may see that there is a good chance that you actually do have some of these chemicals lingering in and around your home—and your family.
Pesticides, according to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), are also referred to as fungicides, herbicides, and rodenticides. They can include such things as bug sprays, insect repellant, weed killer, rat poison, and even the flea shampoo for the family pet. They are all designed to do one thing: kill a pest.
