Forests, wildlife and people in California's Sierra Nevada mountains could be endangered by one of the most dangerous pesticides around: carbofuran
These active ingredients include permethrin, carbofuran

He said the confiscated pesticides were being sold with brand names of Monomi Haipo and Carbofuran

In the present work, the ability of a bacterial consortium to degrade carbofuran
, malathion and 2,4-D was evaluated.
In emailed comments, WCS spokesman Eng Mengey said the highly toxic insecticide carbofuran
(pictured above dried onto the skin of a dead fish) is a major culprit, identified through analysis of the dead animal's stomach.
The present study aims to evaluate the efficiency of nanofiltration, using a commercial membrane, removing three pesticides from the carbamates group: carbaryl, carbofuran
and methomyl, added at different concentrations in distilled water, and single concentration in pond water.
