Organic pest control products work. Ask a company that uses them in their business, not a company that relies on synthetic, toxic products.
Synthetic pesticides are mostly made from petroleum derivatives which harm your endocrine system. The science is clear, pesticides harm your thyroid and other hormones. Notice how so many pesticides have been pulled off the market by the EPA due to dangers to health and the environment. Chlordane, DDT, Dursban, Diazinon, Baygon and a long list of other products, all deemed too toxic for use.
Now, even Permethrin is on the chopping block as too toxic.
However, there is a long lost of non-toxic, food grade products which do a fine job killing pests without poisoning people and pets. Yes, Food Grade! So safe, you can eat these product and probably have eaten some of them this week already.
*Food grade diatomaceous earth, also known as fossil shell flour, is used in flour as an anti-caking agent. It is also one of the ingredients in fast food taco meat and toothpaste. It is safe to eat and kills pests by cutting their exoskeleton causing them to dehydrate. Caution: Pool grade DE is not the same and is considered toxic!
* Essential Oils, such as clove, thyme, rosemary, wintergreen, peppermint, cedar, garlic and citrus are all very effective against pests. They usually smell great when applied properly and blended for the best results.
*Soaps are often used for low-toxic pest control . All soaps will kill pests by removing the waxy covering on their exoskeleton which causes the insect to die. Pine oil cleaners work great for killing roaches and exposed bedbugs and soap has always been great for killing large swarms of bees hanging on a limb. Soaps do not leave a residual and can possibly be repellant to insects.
FIFRA 25-B EXEMPT is a specific category developed by the EPA in 1996 to list and promote the use of non toxic, least toxic products. A new signal word was developed called GRAS which means "Generally Regarded As Safe". Isn't that what you want around your home and family?
