Usually conversations about using a natural approach to infestation control are geared around the into the well-being of the people and creatures 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 ought to be.
However, almost all of us forget to take into account that chemicals impact people where they are manufactured, not only 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 misfortune! Which kind of accident can occur anywhere.
I have gained a brand new insight from reading concerning this tragedy. Did you realize there were 4, 000 people murdered immediately, and another 20, 000 who were murdered from side impacts for many years afterward?

It occurs in my experience that if first world countries would reduce their reliance on chemicals for pest control, the production of those chemicals would decline with the need, 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 might have reduced direct exposure -- potential and real -- to poisons used in pesticides. People in first world countries who live near chemical plants would also be more secure from chemicals produced in such plants -- chemicals that could be released through incidents or terrorism. There are lots of ways to regulate pests other than with the use of dangerous chemicals. Lives rely upon that alternative approach being used.
