Engage brain, eyes and hands when picking things off shelves!
We went to town to buy some sewing thread and to get some Organic bug control spray. I stood and read the labels on the bottles, picked up the one I wanted, came home and went to use it:(
I had picked up the wrong one. Not content with that, I had picked up one of the worst non-organic sprays I could - see this link here to an article written by the British Bee Keeping Association or this one here written by The Soil Association. Both links list the main companies responsible for selling the stuff, plus a letter you can download and send off should you so desire.
The spray I inadvertently picked up is dangerous to bees, fish and other aquatic things, and is not recommended in the vicinity of household pets or children. Yes it might well kill everything (and more) than I wanted but if used, I have to wait days to eat what I have sprayed, if indeed I would want to eat them.
NO THANK YOU!!!
Well I am sorry, despite the cost of petrol, it will be returned when we next go shopping. We have visiting grand-dogs, two lots of bees nesting in logs, lots of aquatic life, Gold Finches and Coal Tits nesting, plus a myriad of wanted wildlife. We are totally organic and whilst I might go around squashing and standing on nasties, if I have to resort to sprays, I use organic even though they are not as good as non-organic.
Here are some links to making your own organic sprays if you so desire:
Green Living, Organic Gardening, Hope Gardens, and finally Tipnut
Hopefully, you should be able to find something there to use.
