    Can anyone provide a link to a website that compares toxicity of commonly used lawn care chemicals to household products? I'd like the LD50 of things like table salt, vinegar, aspirin,.... At a college, everyone thinks they know everything and I need some facts to talk common sense to them.
    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Try www.prginc.com/Borates/using-borates.html. This page contains a small list of common materials and different pesticides for comparison. It doesn't contain any herbicides but if you have the LD50 could see how they compare.
