To the editor:
I am a landscape consultant with passion, fire and a considerable amount of energy.
I am disturbed by an article I read in the Capital News printed Aug. 17 titled When It Comes To Fending Off Insects, Detective Work Helps.
A company is quoted in this article called Amdro pest-control products. So I researched the company name wondering who the dickens are they. Well, they are an American company with pesticide products made with harsh synthetic chemicals.
The ironic part is that Kelowna has a bylaw stating no synthetic chemicals to be used on lawns by homeowners and yet we publish an article that clearly promotes this situation.
I work very hard to bring information to people here in Kelowna about natural/organic alternatives for lawn and gardens. I facilitate workshops/seminars for the City of Kelowna talking and demonstrating about this very important environmental issue.
There are a lot of fantastic Canadian organic/natural and biological products on the market to boast about that work incredibly well to control pests in our lawns and gardens.
