In a dwelling, it happens to encounter some insects and animals visitors,especially if a garden or important vegetation exists in the immediate vicinity. This may not cause you discomfort. However, in the presence of too large a population of these parasites,the discomfort caused requires energy measures that can be preventive or curative against these invaders. Various natural or chemical insecticides are used. Advertisements are coming to the web or on the television as the fall or summer approaches in Canada, to tout their merits. But we must note disappointments and inconveniences.
Indeed, if some advertisements are true others fish out of exaggeration of efficiency, or by omission of certain dangers inherent in their miracle products. It is important to remove the veil around commercial insecticides that can be used safely to make undesirables disappear or reduce their dictation.
So-called natural, effective and safe insecticides?
Consumers are increasingly focused on products that preserve their health and the environment. Commercial companies have also noticed this and a range of natural products, or declared nature-friendly, is gaining ground on the shelves. If insecticide products are strictly regulated, their exaggerated promises of safety or efficacy should not be taken as an absolute truth.
Naturally, limited efficiency
Some products based on naturally occurring substances (deformed or released in the home)act as repellent. They can eliminate insects such as:
- Carpenter ants;
- The beetles;
But their effectiveness is limited. Which may lead us to consider them a myth. This is the case of lemongrass, which is difficult to satisfy.
As for the pyrethra, once used by the ancient Persians and Chinese to fight fleas, its effectiveness is proven. A product made from plant-based pyrethre, however, degrades very quickly, and its anti-insect action does not last long. Thus geranium, lavender, basil, lemon balm or others have a rather mixed effectiveness. To do this, the active ingredients of these plants are manufactured synthetically to increase the power of new insecticide products with lower health risks.
In the event of aninfestation by aninsectfamily or a species ofpest, a reliable extermination company can advise you and accompany you if necessary to get rid of them. Operating in greater Montreal and around, the company Exterminator A Montréal efficiently gets rid of these insects in strict compliance with the standards in force protecting the environment.
Are insecticides with natural origins safe for humans?
To control the crawling or flying insect, or against the spider or tick, synthetic pyrethroids act as neurotoxins at the touch of a single contact. They remain dangerous to humans, but are safer than the old products made from dichlorvos, chlorpyrifos, Propoxur…
Indoors, they are therefore safer, but can harm asthmatics or allergy sufferers, as well as less cautious children. In the case of long-term exposure to pyrenthroid-composed products, major health problems may arise:
- Musculoskeletal or cerebral disorder;
- Weakened immunity after intoxication, with opportunities to develop cancers for certain products.
High efficiency combined with great ease of use (in a diffuser, impregnated nets, spray), rhymes with increased toxicity to users.
It is therefore necessary to remain vigilant and strictly adhere to the guidelines of use by ensuring minimal exposure to all types of insecticide in the trade.
What ways to protect yourself safely
When it is necessary to control rodents such asred squirrels, groundhogs, raccoons,or rats and mice that are more harmful to household supplies, it is better to regrow them than to eliminate them in order to preserve nature.
Some insects such asbees or ladybugs, useful to humans in a garden and the environment, are to be protected if one really loves nature. Prevention is one of the best tricks and requires just small changes of habit every day to coexist without a hitch with this mini-fauna.
Conventional repellents are among the best performing, checking their benign composition, due to direct contact during their use. Installing a mosquito net at the entrances will limit the presence of most flying insects.
