You’ve got pests and you want them gone. You are motivated by Green Living standards but gosh, you want these pests gone yesterday. What is a Green Living advocate supposed to do?
Use a natural pest control solution that is safe and effective. But isn’t that a bit of an oxymoron? If it is green and natural, does it really kill and repel pests effectively? The answer depends on what product(s) you choose so here is the scoop…
Most pesticides on the market today are synthetic, man-made chemical concoctions. They are developed using neuro-toxin technology that attacks and destroys the neurological system of pests. So how do humans react to these non-natural poisons?
Well, it isn’t pretty. Synthetic pesticides are linked to a myriad of health issues such as ADHD, Autism, Alzheimer’s, Diabetes, Cancer, plus hundreds of others. That is because these diseases are all examples of compromised health and a synthetic neuro-toxin is created to destroy the health of pests. As natural beings, we are not immune to the cumulative effects of these toxins that bio-accumulate in our cells and tissues. We are not able to metabolize them so they have no place to go. That fact alone should make synthetic, the number one category to avoid. panther pest control
But here are some very interesting facts that ‘Big Chemical’ doesn’t want you to know. Natural pest control products actually work better for several reasons.
Pests cannot become immune to natural options whereas they are destined to become resistant to synthetic poisons. This is an odd concept to grasp but an indisputable phenomenon in science referred to as ‘Pesticide Resistance’. When a population of pests is exposed to a synthetic pesticide, a certain number will survive and then pass that immunity on to their offspring. Eventually, the entire pest population is resistant to that chemical and therefore a more toxic solution must be used in order to maintain the same level of control. For this reason, some pesticides in use today are up to 1000 times stronger than those used just ten years ago.
In contrast, pests cannot become immune to natural pest control options because you can’t change the laws of Nature. Therefore, pest control solutions that come from Nature herself are actually far more capable.
Secondly, the chance for a recurring infestation drops significantly when using natural, green options rather than man-made chemicals. Synthetic pesticides create ‘super bugs’ with aggressive population growth. If you want to get rid of bugs and make sure they don’t come back, green, safe and natural is the way to go.
If you are a devotee of Green Living and become faced with a pest issue, you can do what Big Chemical has trained you to do and think that only the most lethal dose of synthetic chemicals is going to work OR you can choose natural, safe and effective solutions that cause no harm to you or your family and more effectively and permanently control the pests.
