Coal tar creosote has been used as a wood preservative pesticide in the United States since the late 1890s. This accounts for more than 97% of coal tar creosote production (383). Coal tar creosote prevents animal and plant growth on concrete marine pilings and is a component of roofing pitch.. Other uses include animal and bird repellent, insecticide, animal dip, fungicide, and pharmaceutical applications. Beechwood creosote has, in the past, been used for medicinal purposes. It is rarely used in the United States for medical purposes today.
