OCPs, Organochlorine pesticides
See Wellington catalogue
OCPs (organochlorine pesticides) are chemical substances used to combat insect pests, but which have harmful effects on health and the environment, such as DDT, lindane and chlordane.
The best-known OCPs are DDT and Lindane, and almost all are listed in the Stockholm Convention (an international agreement banning certain pollutants). In other words, the use of these molecules is banned in many countries, including France, but when no alternative has been found, some are still used, particularly in agriculture.
Furthermore, these pesticides are very stable substances, bioaccumulable and not very soluble in water. Some organochlorine pesticides will persist for a very long time in fat, plant tissue and soil. The properties of these molecules mean that they belong in the category of persistent organic pollutants (POPs).
Wellington offers individual solutions and native and/or labeled mixes for the most sought after organochlorine pesticides.
