Usually conversations about using a natural approach to pest control are geared around the health 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 simply 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, India, just came across my desk. What a disaster! Which kind of crash can occur anywhere.
I have gained a brand new insight from reading concerning this tragedy. Do you realize that there were 4, 000 people killed immediately, and another 20, 000 who were murdered from side impacts for years afterward? And that lots of thousands of men and women have suffered severe health issues due to explosion that released harmful 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 need, and plants would be closed or re-purposed. If plants making toxic chemicals are closed, or re-purposed to non-toxic chemical manufacturing, 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 safer 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 toxic chemicals. Lives be based upon that alternative approach being used.

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.
