Have yard, use pesticides. It’s a simple equation. Grass lawns fall prone to bugs, plant disease, molds and more, leaving the lawn owner with a few problems to solve. If you believe the hype from certain lawn care product producers, the no-brainer solution to combating yard issues is to slather your grass in pesticides, insecticides and herbicides. These poisonous chemicals target plant problems and, if used correctly, leave you with a lush green lawn.
However, the traces of what’s left in your yard after pesticide treatments make your lawn much less inviting than it may look. A lawn laced in pesticides is a danger to you, your family and your pets. While alerts about certain commonly used pesticide chemicals reach back as far as the 80’s, it wasn’t until the past decade or so that people have become increasingly aware of this issue.
