Safe and Natural Pest Control Remedies
When you look at the infographic below and realize how easy it is to make natural pest remedies, you might wonder why more people don’t avail themselves of these safe and healthy options.
One reason, no doubt, is lack of awareness. Commercial pesticides have become so prevalent on store shelves and so aggressively marketed that people can easily assume they are safe: “Hey, everybody must be using this stuff, so it must be OK.” Another possible reason for toxic pesticides in the house is convenience.
DIY chemical mixing involves a little work (not very much, as you will see in the infographic), but it’s hard to beat grabbing a ready-to-go spray bottle of pesticide off the hardware store shelf. We, however, would argue, and think you will agree, that in the case of pesticides, a little extra work has a gigantic payoff in health and safety for the people you love most.
