An Argument For Natural Pest Control
Usually conversations about using a natural approach to pest control are geared around the health and well-being of the people and animals in the area being managed — like a restaurant, hotel, or even cruise ship. There is always concern about the effects on humans when a chemical approach to pest control is used, as there should be.
However, most of us forget to take into account that chemicals impact people where they are manufactured, not just where they are used. It’s time to consider those people too. An article about the explosion twenty years ago at the chemical plant in Bhopal, India, just came across my desk. What a tragedy! And that kind of accident can happen anywhere.
I have gained a new insight from reading about this tragedy. Did you realize that there were 4,000 people killed immediately, and another 20,000 who were killed from side affects for years afterward? And that hundreds of thousands of people have suffered severe health problems because of the explosion that released toxic chemicals into the air and water?
It occurs to me that if first world countries would reduce their reliance on chemicals for pest control, the production of those chemicals would decline with the demand, and plants would be closed or re-purposed. If plants making toxic chemicals are closed, or re-purposed to non-toxic chemical production, people in third world countries would have reduced exposure — potential Pest Control Methods Ppt and real — to poisons used in pesticides. People in first world countries who live near chemical plants would also be safer from chemicals produced in such plants — chemicals that could be released through accidents or terrorism. There are lots of ways to control pests other than with the use of poisonous chemicals. Lives depend on that alternative approach being used.
