Interest in nonchemical pest control has increased over the past several years. To some people, this means the same as “organic farming,” which implies nature’s way. But in this publication, we talk about controlling pests without chemicals, or at least fewer chemicals. This approach does have some limitations.
Here are some of them:
1. The problem area needs more personal attention.
2. Nonchemical control is hard work, so it may be better for small areas. This depends on the available labor supply.
