Home gardeners often use more pesticides per square foot in their gardens than farmers do in the fields, thinking that if a little is good, more will be better.
This is a serious mistake and a misuse of pesticides.
Pesticide overuse has a number of adverse effects:
It makes food less safe to eat, especially if there are residues at harvest time.
It makes handling plants dangerous.
It may harm or kill beneficial insects, earthworms, birds and pets.
