We share a planet with other creatures, some of which we live peacefully with, others not so much. Unfortunately, most pesticides, including herbicides, insecticides, and fungicides, contain chemicals that cause health complications for humans and wildlife.
Pesticides cause a wide range of short and long-term health symptoms, such as headaches, skin and eye irritation, dizziness, and nausea. Pesticides have even been linked to cancer, endocrine system damage, and birth defects.
Pesticides present acute dangers to other living organisms as well, sometimes having devastating environmental effects. Pesticides can pollute the air, water, and soil. They are harmful to many living species and can kill microorganisms that would have been beneficial for soil health.
Over one billion pounds of chemical pesticides are used every year in the United States (about 5.6 billion pounds worldwide) (ncbi.nlm.nih.gov).
As a general rule, don’t use pesticides around your home. The strong chemicals in pesticides are much more harmful to your health and the environment than to the insects themselves. Even small amounts can build up in your indoor air, water supply, and cause harm to you and other animals in the food chain.
Biopesticides, using organisms to gain biological control over pests, is a natural way to reduce destructive pests and organisms. Beneficial organisms build up the ecosystem’s natural resistance to destructive organisms. Consider using organic soil stimulants, such as Holganix, to promote healthy plants able to resist pathogens and disease.
One way to prevent pests in your yard and home is to choose pest-resistant plants that work well in your region.
Get rid of all the entrance points for pests by fixing broken windows, sealing small cracks, weatherstripping doors/windows, and more. If you do open your windows for ventilation or a fresh breeze, make sure you have properly installed screens. This keeps flies, cockroaches, and other insects from entering your home in the first place.
