What does the term “natural” mean?
In the Webster’s Dictionary "natural" is defined as an adjective meaning, produced or existing by nature, not artificial. In our modern society natural is increasingly being used to mean anything that is good, safe and healthy. However, in the strict definition of the word that simply is not true. The animal and plant kingdoms produce the most poisonous substances on our earth, not to mention the fungi, molds and bacteria. So it is important to understand the chemistry and mode of action of any "natural" products before you use them.
What does the term “pest” mean?
In the modern pest control industry it is defined most commonly as an animal or plant out of place. A dandelion in your yard is a pest; it’s a weed. Yet at face value dandelions have pretty yellow flower, that actually make a tasty wine and the young tender leaves are a nutritious food cooked like spinach. Most people would rather not have the weed than have the wine, and that is the way with most pests. They usually have a good side, but most often the bad side overcomes the good. For instance, fire ants prey on serious lawn pests like chinch bugs, but anybody familiar with this painful and dangerous pest knows it needs to go. So, it is important to understand the behavior and biology of the animals that invade homes & lawns to determine whether or not it is a pest or a "good guy" like a robber fly or a hawk moth.
