Pesticides and Herbicides

Pesticides & Herbicides & Fertilizers

Information everyone should know about pesticides and herbicides.

Please pass the link to this page onto others whether they are gardeners or not.  Pesticides and herbicides are not only used in our yards but on the yards of neighbors, public property, and of course our food.

I will add new links as I find them.

If you have no other reason for avoiding synthetic pesticides, herbicides, and fertilizers keep in mind that most synthetics (including these) are made from petroleum products.  If you want to reduce the amount of petroleum used this would be the perfect way.
