Most of the time, ‘urgency’ is the name of the game when it comes to pest control. Whether it’s a household or a business that needs it, there’s always a need for fast, high quality pest solutions. Some people want organic pest treatments. Sometimes they insist on it.
You won’t really get bothered by a few insects or pests roaming around your property, because there seems to be no risk of immediate damage or harm to your family, business, or livelihood. You’d probably think you can delay addressing the issue because after all, a few pests can be eliminated with your bare hands.
But when the situation gets worse and you see them every day in huge numbers, it already raises a red flag and you feel the need to address the matter right away. The first thing we do is to jump in front of the computer and rummage for the best pest solution that has been working effectively for many.
Organic pest solutions sound really interesting with all the write-up you can see showcasing these treatments’ safety and affordability. But before jumping to any conclusions, make sure you know the magnitude of the pest infestation problem you are facing and the level of effectiveness that these green products offer.
Organic Treatments Are Not Always Safe
This is counter-intuitive: first off, science can back us up when we say that some ‘organic’ pest control products are not always safe for the environment. In fact, researchers found out that a specific organic mineral oil-based product kills ladybugs and flower bugs when applied in a soybean crop farm. These aforementioned insects are the good ones since they naturally protect the crop.
It’s also notable to mention another study in California that shatters the misconception that ‘natural is always safer.’ They wrote in their study about natural and synthetic chemicals that 62% of human carcinogens are in fact natural chemicals.
We have to understand that ‘synthetic’ does not always mean harmful. They are only different from what’s ‘natural’ because the byproducts are made with human intervention and with structures that many not be found in nature.
The Waiting Game
Yes, you can find procedures on how to create your own homemade natural pest control solutions on the internet. But you have to accept that they are not always effective. When you are on the verge of losing your investments because of pest infestation, you cannot afford to wait for a couple of months for the problem to be eliminated completely.
This is the problem you will face when you choose to go green. You will have to wait for a certain period of time that could take a month to a couple more because the organic solutions are not effective enough.
