Decide How Much Pest Control is Necessary

You need to decide how much of the pest can be tolerated.  Ask yourself the following questions:

  • Does your lawn really need to be totally weed free?
  • Recognizing that some insects are good for your lawn, do you need to get rid of all of them? 
  • Do you need every type of fruit, vegetable, or flower you grow, or could you replace ones that are sensitive to pests with hardier substitutes? 
  • Can you tolerate some blemished fruits and vegetables from your garden? 
  • Is anyone in your home sensitive to chemicals? 
  • Is the pest affecting your neighbors?
