ANSES organised the Pesti’home study to find out more about how French people use pesticides to protect their homes, gardens and pets. The study provided a comprehensive overview of pesticides used in the home, along with the conditions of use and user profiles. This is the first major nationwide study in this field, with over 1,500 households interviewed and more than 5,400 products identified. The results shed new light on actual conditions of storage and use and will help us to better assess population exposure to pesticides.
