Your let­ters and Tales from the Bush

I en­joyed He­len Pilcher’s ar­ti­cle (Should I swat a fly?, Oc­to­ber 2018) and agree that spray­ing in­sec­ti­cides harms more than it helps, ex­ter­mi­nat­ing valu­able pol­li­na­tors and poi­son­ing the air that we breathe.

Na­ture fas­ci­nates me and my fam­ily, but we do not ac­cept be­ing over­run by infesting, harm­ful, disease-car­ry­ing in­sects. “You get to choose,” says sci­en­tist Martin Coath in the ar­ti­cle. We choose to re­spect na­ture, but rid our­selves of pests nat­u­rally and re­spon­si­bly. Choos­ing the safest and most nat­u­ral non-toxic ex­ter­mi­na­tion meth­ods is as easy as a Google search. We are tak­ing care of our­selves when we make the ef­fort to take care of the nat­u­ral world. Roberta K Hiss Ndong, Gabon
