Do You Exterminate?

I talk to people every day who hire exterminators to spray their houses & apartments.
The side effects of pesticides make looking at alternatives very important.

Did you know that:
~~> Lindane, which is given to people suffering from different insect bites and as a treatment for lice, has been banned in California and many 3rd world countries.
~~> The US Environmental Protection Agency has classified permethrin as a carcinogen because it causes lung tumors in lab rats. This is a cream that is used for insects.
~~> Some bugs have grown resistant to pesticides and insecticides.
AND, keep in mind that:

~~> Pesticides are poisons that do not know when to stop killing.
~~> Pesticides and insecticides do some serious collateral damage. They kill many animals that are good for the environment.
~~> These pesticides and insecticides are adversely affecting the health of people, too.
Those affected first and most seriously are:
  • babies
  • babies in utero
  • pregnant women
  • children
  • older folks
  • people with allergies
  • people with asthma
  • people who get headaches and migraines
  • people with immune system problems
  • people with eczema and psoriasis

Melaleuca has some wonderful alternatives -- go to and request inormation! Ask what you can use to replace the toxic poisons that you may using. AND! Spread the word -- let others know there is a solution!
