No matter where you live, pests can prove a problem with your lawn, beds, and gardens. As soon as spring arrives, many of us find ourselves dealing with a host of unwanted yard guests. Mosquitoes can make your property their new home and your backyard barbecue can become an all-you-can-eat buffet in no time with you and your family as the main course. They arrive hungry and insatiable, leaving annoying bites and a reputation to crash any party in their wake.
Fortunately, today’s home and business owners don’t have to rely on toxin-laden, synthetic pest control sprays to rid their property of these bugs. Organic pest control strategies have earned their reputation as an effective way to attack the insects that cause problems to us in our own yards, without the use of chemicals. Organic pest control solutions offer a multitude of benefits, such as:
Most people opt for organic pest control for one specific reason: it’s better for the environment. Yes, synthetic sprays and treatments kill the bugs on your lawn. However, the high concentrations of man-made ingredients can also damage the surrounding ecosystem. Organic pest control uses natural ingredients for an eco-friendly way to eliminate threatening bugs without harming the environment.
Not only is organic pest control better for the environment, but it’s also better for humans and pets. Many chemical sprays contain poisons that you’d never want near your loved ones. Using natural bug treatments eliminates the worry that your child or family pet may come in close contact with potentially harmful pollutants. Most natural products are made with plant or food-based oils as its main ingredient. You can use these products and methods on your lawn and gardens without fear of coming in contact with (or consuming) toxins.
On average, organic pesticides remain effective for a longer time than its chemical counterparts. Conventional sprays start off strong but can quickly lose their impact, requiring home and business owners to retreat often in order to keep insects from coming back. The constant barrage of toxins on your lawn can cause long-term damage to your grass, plants, and flowers.
Think about chemical pest control products as a type of insect antibiotic. Over time, the bugs that are exposed to the poisons and toxins may actually build up a resistance to them. The law of nature states that if a particular bug species is immune to certain chemicals, they can pass those traits on to future buggy generations, eventually resulting in widespread resistance. Organic sprays and treatments leverage natural ingredients to ensure that pests biologically can’t resist it for longer-lasting final results.
