Why do we need pesticides?
I mentioned in previous blogs “CDC Issues Health Alert” and “The days of power spraying every house coming to an end” my real concern of using pesticides in homes and I continue to stand by my convictions regarding my statements. Now with that said I do believe there is a need for pesticides and sometimes you must use pesticides in homes. I find it funny that people want to use Green materials on cleaning their carpets but don’t really care if a Pest Company sprays inside the home. Back in 2010 Rueters published an article “Pesticides tied to ADHD in children in USA study” by researcher Marc Weisskopf of the Harvard School of Public Health.
Technology changes and we need to adapt to stay ahead of the bugs that could hurt or even kill us. Of course you also don’t want the pesticide to kill you either. So by stopping the pests from outside, preventing them from getting into the home is the paramount endeavor. Thjis program is commonally called Integrated Pest Management or (IPM).
