Controlling lawn and outdoor pests is an important facet to any home owner. People pay lucrative amounts of money for property; to some people their home is the most cherished possession they will ever own. The last thing they want is to have a pest problem in their lawn and plant that can ruin outdoor experiences. Luckily, there are ways to prevent these infestations and primarily the main form of protection is through chemicals which will prevent pests from invading landscape.
However, landscape pest control is composed of oil based chemicals that come with both environmental and health drawbacks. There are many negative effects these chemicals can have on your life. The first aspect of life which these chemicals can negatively impact is the environment. Chemicals used as pest control have been shown to linger longer in the environment than most substances and contaminate water supplies, food sources, and even the atmosphere. Using chemical pest controls is environmentally irresponsible and has ultimately lead to a global contamination crisis.
