Usually conversations about using a natural approach to pest control are geared around the into the well-being of the people and pets in the area being managed -- like a restaurant, hotel, or even cruise ship.

I have gained a fresh insight from reading about this tragedy. Performed you realize there were 4, 000 people killed immediately, and another 20, 000 who were killed from side impacts for years afterward?

It occurs to me 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 creation, people in third world countries could have reduced exposure -- potential and real -- to poisons used in pesticides. People in first world countries who live near chemical plants would also be less dangerous from chemicals produced in such plants -- chemicals that could be released through accidents or terrorism. There are lots of ways to regulate pests other than with the use of dangerous chemicals. Lives depend on that alternative approach being used.
