I'm no scientist, but the majority of homeowners do not care what chemicals they use or how they use them or how often they use them. They see one bug a month and think they need a pest control contract.
Even worse than that are those who use pesticides as a preventive!
Absolute insanity!!!

And your point regarding a pack of Marlboro Reds? I don't know anyone who thinks about what a bug feels like when it dies.
Actually, I know the last thing that goes through a bugs mind...when it hits a windshield.





Its butt.

I probably got my degree from the same place you got yours.
No one needs a degree to understand that pesticides are poison.

I care very much about most living things . . .
A roach possibly crawling across my kitchen counter?
Not so much.
