Black Market Pesticides

Black Market Pesticides-Be careful with pesticides from black markets

A Dominican Republic company that manufactures pesticides is under investigation by the government. The reason for the investigation is that officials discover the pesticides are being sold in Chinatown on the black market.

Tres Pasitos or Three little steps is a granular product whose name comes after its claim to kill pests three steps. The product “kills” the pests after coming in contact with the product.

Although it is effective, Tres Pasitos is illegal. This is because the product contains chemicals that don’t have the approval of the CDC. These chemicals include aldicarb, which can kill people by paralyzing the respiratory system.

A total of 111 illnesses associate with bed-bug related insecticides are have been reported around the country. This includes seven states between 2003 and 2010 according to the Centers for Disease and Prevention.

The truth is that bed bugs do not transmit disease or cause illness, but the insecticides used to kill them do. This can place you and your family at risk. Insecticides are toxic and can cause damage to those in close contact with the product. It can harm your family and your pets as well.

To lower the risk of illness and disease from insecticides, the CDC recommends that people with bed bug problems seek professional pest control help.

Avoid getting black market pesticides and avoid doing any harm to your family. Get help from the right people to do the right job.
