Pests be Gone!

I’ve always taken for granted the can of Mortien or Doom that I casually pick up at the supermarket and use to douse the horrible mini home invaders that are insects (when they’re too big or scary for me to cover with a cup and move outside or are buzzing around my head trying to stop me from sleeping…). I had never put much thought into just how that can works to kill those awful little critters. As it turns out, the magic ingredient is daisys. Yes, pretty little white flowers with innocent little yellow centers! More specifically it’s a wee flower called pyrethrum, and this little dude and it’s a natural insecticide. Kenya produces up to 90% of the worlds pyrethrum, its hand grown, hand picked, and shipped off overseas to be used as an insecticide!
