This section will be coming soon

We’re sorry.

The pest control section of the Guide to Less Toxic Products is not yet available, due to lack of funding to research and write this section. (See What a Situation to Be In! EHANS’ Guide to Less Toxic Products is a huge success but funders’ just don’t get it….)

EHANS will continue to seek funding to develop this section. Please consider making a donation to help us bring this information to you and others.

I’d like to help EHANS develop the Pest Control Section of the Guide to Less Toxic Products!

Until the pest control section is developed, you may want to consult EHANS’ general information website,, for information on some pest control issues.
