Recently, the use of safe and toxic-free pest control has been pushed due to increasing awareness on environment and nature concerns plus the increasing popularity of using organic materials for one’s safety and protection. The use of organic substances started on using toxic free chemicals on growing plants and crops for a healthy eating. Chemical-free pesticides for household use took some time to come by.
There is a toxic-free and more environment-friendly way of eliminating pests in the home such as cockroaches, flies, mosquitoes, termites, rodents, bugs, and many others. Some people are in doubt if organic pest control is effective or not. Organic pest control may be effective for some pests but it takes more time to take effect than the normal pest control substances. Newer organic products, though, are more efficient than the traditional pesticides. It is necessary to always get necessary information of the products that you are using – whether natural or traditional pest control method. There are some cases where organic pest control method is not as effective and there are also some cases where there is still no natural method for eliminating certain pests. In using pest control methods, bear in mind that it will work effectively if done the right way.
Households must also realize that not all natural is safe and effective. There are some toxic elements that come naturally in humankind. This means that every pest control substance should be use with proper precautions and always follow instructions in using the product.
Concerns about environment and health issues rose consciousness and usage of chemical-free products ranging from medicines, home remedies, and fertilizers to pesticides or insecticides. Many consumers and business are adopting the use of using natural products not just because it is safe but also due to its increasing demand and popularity in the market. These days, businesses and institutions that sell natural and organic products cannot meet the increasing demand of the customers.
Nowadays, many cities, states and countries are using the IPM or Integrated Pest Management in their schools to eliminate pests and insects and minimize the use of chemical pesticides. Like schools where the population is sensitive, this is also done in many hospitals to protect the safety of the patients as well as the employees. They have been starting to use this approach because they are aware of the harmful and damaging effects of traditional pesticides used by people for so many years now. It has been showed that traditional pesticides have been linked to birth defects, cancer, neurological disorders, and many others as well as environment damages.
Different movements and organizations have been educating people on the pesticide free environment using non-chemical products. They are doing this through combined efforts of private individuals and concern organizations and it has already created awareness on many people and also the use of chemical-free products.
Controlling pests and insects should be done without affecting the health of the people and the environment as well as balancing the cost and its effectiveness.
