Starting at Home

Pesticides at home

We all deal with pests at home, indoors and out. Pesticide companies want us to believe we need powerful chemicals to keep our families, pets and gardens safe. Yet there are commonsense solutions that don't require risking the health of our loved ones and the environment.

With a little help, we can find alternative solutions to control pests at home. But dealing with the broader problem of pesticides requires that we all work together to change policies and promote safer pest management practices in homes, schools, golf courses, forests and farms across the country. Starting at home is important and makes a difference, and taking action is essential to make the real changes needed.
