Description

Carbaryl toxicity is the toxic effect of the pesticide carbaryl on humans, animals, and the environment. Carbaryl is a broad-spectrum insecticide that is used to control a wide variety of pests, including mites, aphids, beetles, and caterpillars. It is toxic to humans and animals because it affects the nervous system, causing symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, dizziness, and confusion. It can also cause skin and eye irritation, and long-term exposure can lead to liver and kidney damage. In the environment, carbaryl can contaminate water sources and kill beneficial insects, such as bees and butterflies.
