Usually conversations about using a natural approach to pest control are geared around the health 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, most of us forget 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, Indian, just came across my desk. What a tragedy! Which kind of accident could happen anywhere.
I have gained a brand new insight from reading concerning this tragedy. Did you realize there were 4, 000 people killed immediately, and another 20, 000 who were killed from side affects for many years afterward? And that lots of thousands of folks have suffered severe health issues because of the explosion that released toxic chemicals into the air and water?
It occurs in my opinion that if first world countries would reduce their reliance on chemicals for pest control, the production of those chemicals would decline with the demand, and plants would be closed or re-purposed. When plants making toxic chemicals are closed, or re-purposed to non-toxic chemical creation, 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 vegetation would also be less dangerous from chemicals produced in such plants -- chemicals that could be released through mishaps or terrorism. There are lots of ways to regulate pests other than with the use of poisonous chemicals. Lives rely upon that alternative approach being used.
With the increase of your bed bugs in hotels across the US, it could be unnerving to think about keeping your hotel bug-free without pesticides. Stop panicking! Right now 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 substance pest control from your procedures will make the world an improved destination to live. Adopting natural pest control is one step toward creating a welcome habitat to guests. That's an monetarily sound decision.
