Toxic Sheep Dip Threatens British Bugs

July 18, 2005 By: Marshall Cutchin

A sheep dip that replaced another dip because it was dangerous to humans is 1000 times more toxic to insect life and threatens to wipe out bug life in many British streams. “Buglife estimates that fly life in more than 1,000 miles of river in Britain has been wiped out in the past 18 months, damaging salmon, sea trout and trout habitats.” Charles Clover in the London News Telegraph.
