Safe remedies for pests
Dealing with insect pests in the home can be a major pain. Ants, fleas, roaches and the like are not only a source of dismay when spotted in the home, getting rid of them is time consuming and can incur monetary expense.
Avoid dangerous chemicals.
Chemical-based insecticides are of great concern as more and more people become aware of the devastating effects of even light use of products that can cause everything from irritation to disruption of hormone function to cancer.
For those with concerns over the health hazards of using synthetic, chemical-based pesticides, finding an environmentally friendly solution that is people and pet friendly has often proved to be equally as challenging as eradicating the invading insect pests.
Certified and safe
To the average person, natural means free of chemicals, but in actuality, natural means a substance hasn’t been chemically altered in some way or synthesized. (Technically speaking, water is a chemical.) Likewise, organic means the substance is certified not to contain more than 5 percent of a synthetic or chemical additive.
Natural substances come from plants and animals such as essential oils used around the home and manure or compost used in the garden. It should also be noted that the term natural on a product just means there are no “regulated” ingredients.
In an eco-friendly home, the use of products such as:
- Diatomaceous earth
- Dried herbs
- Essential oils
- Practices such as vacuuming
As well as an understanding of the life cycle of household pests, will help you to learn how, and with what, and the frequency with which to treat infestations.
Vacuuming with a High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filter can reduce insect debris that may become airborne. Never use insecticides, natural or synthetic, around foodstuffs. Even trace amounts on surfaces where foods are stored or prepared can cause contamination and lead to a toxic reaction. Use of dusts and baits must be limited to areas that cannot be easily accessed by animals and children.
