Ewww it's a bug!

The pictures demonstrate how nature will balance herself out. It is us humans, who, feeling like we have to spray and kill anything, will mess that balance up. Hold on, let me get on my soapbox……

I know I frustrate many customers who come in and just want a spray to kill <insert any bug in the world>. You have to understand that using an insecticide can be counterproductive. Not only do you kill what is regarded as a pest…. you also kill the beneficial insects that have been sent in to take care of the pest. There is not one insecticide out there that only kills one kind of insect. Sorry, it does not exist. Yep, I said it, it does not exist. You want to kill ants? Okay. You will also kill moths, butterflies, dragonflies, ladybugs, bees, etc, etc. You want to kill spiders? Okay. You will also kill moths, butterflies, dragonflies, ladybugs, bees, etc, etc. You want to kill mosquitos? Okay. You will also kill moths, butterflies, dragonflies, lightening bugs, ladybugs, bees, etc, etc. And did you know that most of the sprays that are used are also toxic to aquatic life and birds?
