Thanks for your editorial regarding the proven lethal toxicity of chlorpyrifos to children (“The pesticide the EPA knows harms children but approved anyway,” July 22).

May it serve as a warning to all gardeners: Do not use it on large or small gardens or even on backyard trees. Children everywhere are at risk
