We all want a beautiful lawn that is pest-free. However, the more pesticide we apply doesn’t always do good for our lawn, or the environment. Too many harsh chemicals can harm things other than pesky weeds and pests. As homeowners, we might think we always have to use pesticides, “just because.” There are even advertisements for them. The truth is pesticides kill all organisms that live where we apply the chemicals, and this includes beneficial organisms. Bees are in serious threat because of this. Plants fully absorb these chemicals, making them toxic to any insect or animal feeding on them. Sure, life without bees seems fine, but it won’t be: they are vital to plant proliferation and evolution. Also, ladybugs are in trouble. Ladybugs like to eat aphids, which we consider a common pest. Once pesticides are applied to their ecosystem, ladybugs become weakened. Aphids repopulate much more quickly than ladybugs, so we will end up with even more pesty aphids and not enough ladybugs to kill them.
