If you live in Fresno, the Central Valley or throughout California, pesticides are utilized with high frequency. Some are dangerous and some are less dangerous, but they ALL can be dangerous. Many farmworkers or nearby residents of farming communities are exposed to dangerous pesticide chemicals daily and do nothing about it.
If you or a family member are suffering from an illness or symptoms that may be related to pesticide chemical exposure, it is critical to inquire about whether nearby properties are applying pesticide chemicals near you. Pesticide Applicators are licensed and governed by the State of California.
They must follow rules and are required to provide advanced notice of dangerous applications but do not always follow the rules. Below are some of the signs or symptoms one may experience resulting from exposure to deadly pesticides or chemicals.
