What is green, requires no commercial pesticides, or organic, natural pesticides, or strange odd electronic devices, and can still keep bugs and weeds off your property, out of your lawn, garden, landscape, and home?
What is the single most effective way to avoid both pests and pesticides? Well, it is the green alternative to pesticides, it is called, (are you ready for this?) pest prevention!
How green are green pesticides?
Even the “green” pesticides offered by many “green” pest control product suppliers start out as raw materials. The raw ingredients must be harvested, hauled to a factory, processed, packaged, labeled, and shipped. All requiring fuel! There is nothing wrong with these products, in fact, many of them rival their commercial counterparts in effectiveness, but preventing pest is still more environmentally friendly, and has a much smaller carbon footprint! Pest prevention is the most green alternative to pest control as usual. Besides, it just makes more sense to prevent pests, than to deal with them when they become a problem.
Prevention is our oldest and best pest control
Pest prevention is not a new idea, but it is still the best pest control idea! It has been all but ignored in most IPM programs, discounted by many in the commercial pesticide businesses, and somehow skipped over and missed by many in the green community. It still remains, however, the single most important factor in controlling pests, no exceptions! It is the most reasonable, logical, economical, environmentally friendly, ecologically sound means of dealing with bug and weed pests.
