But United states Medical Association suggests that Pesticides have been linked to a range of health problems in children, including autism spectrum disorders, diabetes, birth defects, cancer, obesity, asthma, hyperactivity and behavior problems etc.

  1. Remove all standing water from the yard.
  2. Remove clutter where pests set up house which includes newspaper stacks and plastics. Seal food in airtight containers.
  3. Repair leaky plumbing, and seal cracks and block holes both inside and outside the house. This helps bar pests from entry and freedom of movement.

  5. Enlist predatory insects, birds, and other wildlife to feast on pests by creating a hospitable habitat in your backyard.
