Long lasting synthetic compounds which affect the nervous system of insects on contact are applied as insecticides. Examples of best insecticides are the chlorinated hydrocarbons DDT, Chlordane and Toxaphene, even though DDT has been banned. Organophosphate insecticides include Malathiom, Parathion and Dimethoate. 2, 4- dichlorophenoxyacetic acid is the most effective herbicide, used to kill broad leaved weeds.
The disadvantage of insect sprays is that though they are valuable for agriculture, they can cause serious hurt. Hence more and more people are shifting to organic and natural and biological pest control measures. I would suggest you to find more plenty of information about the infestation control methods and safety measures before you start something. This information can be found through many sources. Right now there are many directories which provide free of cost information about pest control and other valuable topics. Enough research can help you a lot in making the right choice. You should always be cautious with chemical methods of pest control because they are extremely useful but can cause lot of problems.
Usually conversations about by using a natural approach to infestations control are geared around the health insurance and 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 should be.
However, most of us miss to take into account that chemicals impact people where they are manufactured, not just 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 disaster! And this kind of incident could happen anywhere.
I have gained a fresh insight from reading about this tragedy. Did you realize that there were 4, 000 people wiped out immediately, and another 20, 000 who were killed from side affects for years afterward? And that 100s of thousands of folks have suffered severe health problems as a result of explosion that released toxic chemicals into the air and water?
