We are all aware that the use of chemicals has fallen out of favour to a
considerable extent since the rise of synthetic insecticides and fungicides. Most
synthetic pesticides are very effective, but kill indiscriminantly, friend and foe
alike. Although they may have short-term advantages, they cause long-term problems
such as acquired immunity resulting in superbugs. Many pesticides are harmful to
the environment and human health, and some are poisonous to animals.
