Chemical Control

Chemicals used as insecticides are either natural or synthetic. Natural chemicals exist in the environment. Synthetic chemicals are made and introduced by humans. Many people mistakenly assume that “natural, organic chemicals” are less toxic than synthetic chemicals. Not true, since there are many poisons that come from naturally existing plants and animals that are more toxic than some synthetic chemicals. So, chemical toxicity is not an accurate measure of “organic.”
