The use of the phrase "pesticides and herbicides" is illogical, since herbicides are a subset of pesticides. It's like saying 'fruit and oranges." Pollinator 14:28, 4 Oct 2003 (UTC)

I think "pesticide" here means animal kingdom pesticide. "Herbicide" means plant-killing substance or selective plant-killing substance. H Padleckas 16:19, 28 Feb 2005 (UTC)
According to the USEPA, "pesticide" is used as a blanket word for algaecides, fungicides, insecticides, etc. dil 14:35, 14 April 2006 (UTC)

Trichlor has no sodium in it. Trichlor is simply "trichloro-s-triazinetrione". —Preceding unsigned comment added by 69.141.200.175 (talkcontribs) 18:43, 18 June 2006
