Using Insecticide To Control Bugs

Some insecticides are injurious to humans and animals, so when contemplating what to use to rid your home, business, or garden of insects and pests, make insecticide control the chief factor. The labels will state that, so never presuppose that when the insecticide says “natural” or “organic” that is completely safe and harmless to you, your children, or your pets, because that is not necessarily the case. Insecticide control is very important, and future compounds and technologies will seek to provide and maintain high degrees of effectiveness, along with a reduced wallop on the environment and human health.

There is a marked interest in establishing genetically enhanced insect and pest specified viruses that could replace conventional chemical insecticides. Chemical or “natural” chemical insecticides however, remain an important tool for managing insects and pests of homes, humans, animals, gardens, and crops.

We, as consumers tend to draw a line between natural and chemical products. Actually, this is quite ludicrous because everything can be broken down to its chemical components. The government organizations, such as America’s FDA, has to approve chemicals, whereas “natural” chemicals are totally unregulated.

A major part of insecticide control is knowledge of any products having to do with pest control. A “natural” insecticide called rotenone is extracted from the derris root. While being completely safe for humans to be around, it is quite detrimental for fish. Rotenone is toxic in large amounts, like many other products, however, it is extremely unlikely that any human or animal will consume much, if any of it.

Another natural insecticide called sabidila is not perilous, but it can cause irritation to the eyes and breathing of some people. As a safety precaution, lock up your pets and wear a mask when spreading this substance.

Pepper is another natural insecticide. You can crush it up and mix it with equal parts water and then spray it on insects and areas they habitat, as well as directly on plants and leaves. Keep it away from your eyes because as we all know, dry pepper and white pepper can irritate the eyes and nasal passages.

Insecticide control is very important because you must be extremely careful on the amounts of any insecticide you use, for the sake of safety.. Whether it is “chemical”, “natural”, or “homemade” treatment, safety is at the forefront of significance when using any product.

There are many natural insecticides that are completely risk-free, and that is boric acid. It will kill several different types of insects, and is only slightly more toxic to humans than salt. Yes, salt could be very toxic to you if you consumed 52 kilos of it.

Things that smell like lemon grass, citronella, and lemon juice are very effective mosquito repellents and totally harmless to humans and animals. Spraying lemon juice with equal parts water on your person for mosquito control, as well as the area around you will help with that issue.

Reading the labels of chemicals will result in more knowledge of insecticide control. By consulting with a professional in pest control, you will gain some very useful information regarding what is bugging you and how to handle it properly, and safely.
