Usually conversations about utilizing a natural approach to infestation control are geared around the health insurance and well-being of the people and animals 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, almost all 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 substance plant in Bhopal, Indian, just came across my desk. What a misfortune! Which kind of incident can occur anywhere.
I have gained a new insight from reading relating to this tragedy. Do you realize that there were 4, 000 people murdered immediately, and another 20, 000 who were wiped out from side impacts for a long time afterward? And that 100s of thousands of individuals have suffered severe health conditions because of the explosion that released toxic chemicals into the air and water?
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. In case plants making toxic chemicals are closed, or re-purposed to non-toxic chemical creation, people in third world countries would have reduced publicity -- potential and real -- to poisons used in pesticides. People in first world countries who live near chemical vegetation would also be more secure from chemicals produced in such plants -- chemicals that may be released through accidents or terrorism. There are lots of ways to manage pests other than with the use of dangerous chemicals. Lives be based upon that alternative approach being used.
With the increase of bed bugs in hotels across the US, it could be unnerving to think about keeping your hotel bug-free without pesticides. Stop panicking! Presently there are natural and organic and natural pest controls and techniques coming out daily that will help you keep your hotel bed bug free, or exterminate them if they are already in residence. It's important to be part of the solution, not contribute to the problem.
Eliminating chemical pest control from your functions will make the world an improved spot to live. Adopting natural pest control is one step toward creating a welcome habitat to guests. That's an economically sound decision.
