“I’ve gotten pest control services in the past and each time I do it leaves a queasy feeling in my stomach,” says Denease Hager, a mom of two small children from Daytona Beach, Florida. “I just don’t feel good spreading those chemicals in and around my house, especially when I have two little kids. This year I am weighing my options to see what else is out there.”
In doing so, she just may be protecting her kids from harm. While many people use pesticides regularly, especially during the spring and summer months, they can have lasting consequences on those exposed to them.
