I would strongly discourage the use of lawn-care pesticides in order to minimize health and environmental risks. There are many non-chemical solutions for your lawn and gardening problems. Consider pesticide-free landscaping alternatives that make use of native plant species tolerant of conditions in your area.
When cleaning out your garage of unwanted pesticides never put them in the regular trash or down storm drains. These unused and unwanted pesticides should be taken to a hazardous waste collection site for disposal.
The more I read about pesticide use the more I search for natural solutions. My lawn may not be lush and green but I know it is safe for the birds and natural pollinators in the area. What do you use on your lawn and in your garden?
