Physiological and biological effects of pesticide residues in poultry

  • Thomas S. Foster
Part of the Reviews of Environmental Contamination and Toxicology book series (RECT, volume 51)


Poultry may be exposed to pesticides! either by ingestion of contaminated feed or through the use of pesticides in poultry houses. Feed may become contaminated by several means: as a result of crop treatment to control infestations; through the fumigation of feeds in ships, ports, stores, etc.; and by employment of insecticidal sprays in granaries and farm buildings. Pesticides are also used in poultry houses for treatment of the birds. This may be accomplished by direct external application of sprays or dusts, by oral administration in the feed, or by the use of thermal vaporizers.
