A nontoxic lifestyle requires knowledge of how to control insects and other pests in and around the home without the use of chemical pesticides.
Since I live in hot, humid Florida, this task has proved incredibly challenging! Roaches, ants, spiders, mosquitoes, flies, fleas and other insects are a problem on a year-round basis.
