Indiscriminately spraying toxins in your garden without proper understanding of the problem is dangerous to your plants, health, and local wildlife (i.e Pollinators). Treatments may also only be effective at certain times of the year. Most insects and plant pathogens have specific life cycles. Those treatments must be carefully selected and applied at proper times to be effective.
