What's Really in That Organic Pesticide?



Check the labels
An article came out this past week in the Willamette Week, written by a Portland exterminator. This Exterminator claimed he worked for a local pesticide company which stated on their website "Guaranteed and green. Protect your home, business, and the environment with [Green Piper] eco-friendly pest control."  While in reality, these chemicals were akin to a sort of “super Raid”.

How can I prevent this from happening to me?
Well, I am glad you asked! Thanks to Local Hazardous Waste Management Program in King County, Washington and Metro - there is now an iPhone app to help you out. Don't have an iPhone? The same information is available through the GrowSmartGrowSafe website.
