Chemical pesticides can save lives e.g. wearing DEET bug products in areas high in mosquitos that spread disease. They can also increase the production of food, which is a good thing when it comes to alleviating world starvation. But do really pesticides belong in our home?
The short answer is, sometimes they do, but most of the time we get by without them, if we follow simple integrated pest management tips, that starve them out, dry them out and keep them out.
Sure whe**n this does work, get rid of the little buggers, with other measures, but before reaching for a can of pest spray or calling in the pest controller, why not try natural methods or mechanical methods like the ones recommended by Beyond Pesticides first. If forced to use chemical methods of pest control, (which should be an absolute last resort for anyone with environmental sensitivities and impaired liver detoxification) be sure to follow the safety instructions closely, and choose the safest and least toxic product available.
