Glendale, AZ (PRWEB) April 5, 2005
While our recent valley rains have brought much needed moisture to our State, it has also brought an infestation of mosquitoes and weeds. Maricopa County has launched the ÂFight the BiteÂ campaign to heighten public awareness of mosquito prevention as other municipalities across the country have done. We also see our neighborhood lawns, fields, and roadsides filled with unwanted weeds. Both of these annoying and potentially dangerous pests have brought about increased application of commercial and home use pesticides that has created much controversy. Thus, the search for safer alternatives is required.
The controversial use and application of pesticides to control these pests poses serious questions. What are the real effects of inhalation or residue contact exposure? Are children, pets, and wildlife more susceptible to their negative effects? Is water runoff of these pesticides killing aquatic life in our community lakes, ponds, etc.? While scientists battle this debate with convincing studies on both sides, the fact remain that our residents, pets, and wildlife are feeling the negative effects. ÂWe are waging a real war, but rather than fighting against an opposition, we are finding better ways to accomplish the same desired results by balancing costs, effectiveness and safety.Â states, John Bennett, President of Eco-Safety Products.
ÂTo safely take back our outdoor living and enjoyment, we are introducing the availability of an organic garlic-based mosquito repellent used for areas such as backyards, parks, campgrounds, school grounds, golf courses, athletic fields, wetlands, etc.Â adds John Bennett. This product has been used for years by organic farmers and municipalities across the country. Garlic contains natural sulfur which repels insects, including mosquitoes, ticks, gnats and fleas. It kills adult mosquitoes on contact. Suffocates mosquito larvae in standing water and repels mosquitoes up to 4 weeks in treated areas. "....After spraying it, our town employees at the Water Control Plant are now able to work outdoors in T-shirts. Spectators can watch our local softball team and not have to fend off mosquitoes with cans of Raid or use Off." - City Mosquito Control Officer. To safely control weeds, the company is introducing an organic vinegar-based weed and grass killer that effectively kills a broad range of weeds and grass usually within an hour, not days. Both of these products are being distributed by Eco-Safety Products to commercial, government and retail outlets. For more information visit http://www.eco-safety.com
