Depending where your home or business is located, one of the most formidable pests known to humankind is the mosquito. It is an ancient species, and it has been in its DNA to survive and thrive for thousands of years. It does well in warmer than usual climates. Ponds, lakes and rivers are familiar breeding grounds. What makes these breeding grounds popular as a tourist resort of sorts for mosquitoes is that they are heavily polluted and starved of oxygen.
While other species that rely on such spaces to survive inevitably die, polluted areas remain familiar nesting grounds for bacteria and mosquitoes. Rudimentary and makeshift pollution controls have been implemented by municipalities but all to little or no effect. Being the formidable creatures they are mosquitoes have been able to adapt to the poisonous chemicals poured over their habit forming grounds. Environmentalists and green living advocates have been warning for a number of years now that if nothing surefooted, innovative, proactive or commonsensical or responsible is done to rid communities and their landscapes of such dangerous pests, nature will surely take its toll.
While some good may be done during this natural process, harm could be done as well. But preventing calamities of an apocalyptic nature is becoming a matter of practice for many sustainable development themed businesses. One such business is that of your organic mosquito control unit. Instead of using ineffective poisonous chemicals that end up doing more harm than good, these units are utilizing organic materials that doom, for once and for all, mosquitoes and other insect like pests.
Laymen and women may be none the wiser. Perhaps this has something to do with the way nature operates. It remains a mysterious source of life which can be graciously used to advantage.
