The days are getting longer and the temperatures are warming up across the country – it’s time to head outdoors and enjoy some much-needed sunshine. But, there’s nothing worse than trying to enjoy a beautiful day out in nature when those pesky, uninvited, pests arrive on the scene.
The challenge often becomes “how do we protect ourselves from the mosquitos, fleas, ticks, etc, while still protecting ourselves from all the unwanted chemicals?” Most insect repellants on the market today contain shocking amounts of toxic chemicals. Have you ever read the warning label on products that contain Deet? Yikes!! We must remember that our skin is the largest organ in our body, and anything we put on it can be absorbed into the bloodstream.
There are two main categories of bug sprays: insecticides and repellents. The Environmental Protection Agency has classified both of these as pesticides in the United States. A pesticide can be classified as any substance or a combination of substances that is intended for:
• Repelling, or
• Mitigating any pest
Insecticides by definition are substances that are used to kill insects. Repellents, on the other hand, are substances that are used to repel insects from landing and climbing on surfaces.
While many of these products have been approved by the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency), there are many organizations that find some of these products to be harmful to us and the environment. Getting educated on what we put in and on our body is more important than ever.
