Using Natural Pesticides

If you have an insect problem, but would like to protect Mother Earth, try using natural pesticides. Most of them use an eco- but not insect-friendly plant base and build upon that.

Used correctly, the insect-destroying powder should be applied to cracks, crevices, hiding places, and entry points, because these are the places where bugs and pests hide. These locations…
