ForensisGroup Biopesticide Expert Witnesses work with certain types of pesticides that are derived from natural materials, such as animals, plants, bacteria, and some minerals. The EPA says that there are roughly 300 registered biopesticide active ingredients and more than 1400 active biopesticide product registrations.
Our experts say that the primary advantages of using biopesticides include the fact that biopesticides are typically much less toxic than conventional pesticides. They usually impact only the targeted pest and closely related organisms—as opposed to broad spectrum, conventional pesticides. These chemicals may affect birds, insects, and mammals. Another plus for biopesticides is that they are often effective in small quantities and will decompose quickly, so that there are lower exposures and eliminating some of the pollution issues caused by the application of conventional pesticides.
In order to use biopesticides effectively and safely, one needs to know a great deal about managing pests and the proper use and application of these materials. Our experts are chemical and agricultural engineers, farmers, and manufacturers. They have assisted attorneys with issues of weed and crop management, herbicide discovery, new pest management technologies, pesticide optimization, and biopesticide mixture and dose analysis.
