Throughout the past decade there have been many laws created to help protect our environment. The agricultural industry has been asked to make a number of changes to the way that they grow all of the crops within their farm fencing and even those building a home garden need to be careful of the products they are using. When you're choosing pesticides you will want to make sure that they are both legal and safe for home use. Here are some tips for making smart choices.

At the end of 2004 a law was created to ban the production of products with the pesticide diazinon. This had previously been one of the most widely used products in home gardens and if you're looking in an older barn or shed then you might still find some examples of this product. It was banned due to the risks it presented to birds and other animals. If you do still have a pesticide with this ingredient than it is not illegal to use it but you should do so with definite caution.

The regulation of pesticides in America is run by each state agricultural office. If you are branching out and want to open a new office location you should check the review of registered pesticides list before starting your landscaping work at your new location. They will be able to tell you about all of the registered pesticides that are available and legal in the region and which ones you should steer clear of.

Pesticide product labels are very important and something that you should always take the time to read and study before using any product. This will help you handle the product safely while you're using it as a landscaper and deck builder, or let you know if that product might put your family or pet at risk. Just because something is legal for use does not mean that it is entirely safe.

Those that want to feel secure about the products that they are using within their garden are now starting to turn more to organic pesticides. But you should remember that just because something is labelled as organic that doesn't necessarily mean that it's not toxic in any way. Some suggestions of organic options that you can use is manure management or your home gardening are neem, bacillus thuringiensis, and insecticidal soap. All of these types are non-toxic to animals and humans. There are pros and cons to each type and you should speak with an expert at your local garden center before choosing which one is right for your outdoor space.
