According to John Hopkins University, home gardeners use nearly 10 times more pesticide per acre than commercial farms. Do you want that many chemicals in your yard and your garden? Organics in garden pest control are just as effective as pesticides, but with little or no downside.
Benefits of Organics in Garden Pest Control
The Benefits of Going Organic include:
- No chemicals lingering in the soil, water supply or plants that are grown. Generally you wouldn’t want chemicals in any of your plants but this is especially important if you grow vegetables or herbs in your home garden. The American Cancer Society published a study in 2001 that showed the herbicide glyphosate, a primary ingredient in Round-Up, resulted in 27% higher chances of contracting non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
- A healthier environment. Use of pesticides can build up a resistance in plants which eventually make them useless anyway. In a more indirect way the use of chemical pesticides discourages organic practices such as composting that result in healthier soil.
- A better understanding of nature and your garden. Using natural predators for pests and companion planting will give you a newfound appreciation for the way natural systems work together.
Use of an organic pest control product such as Pure 3-Way will ensure a healthy and toxin-free garden that is good for you, your family, and the environment.
