It was a rainy/foggy and even snowy (up in the mountains) day and I had to shoot a property in Napanoch, NY. Before I got to Catskills, I had to drive over the Gunks (Shawangunk Ridge) near Ellenville, and that was pretty intense because the rain switched to a snowstorm and a thick fog, so I was hardly navigating through the winding mountain roads.

Save the Salamanders by avoiding tick and mosquito repellents with picaridin and DEET. Use natural bug repellents instead!

Save the Salamanders by choosing a natural tick and mosquito repellent without Picaridin or DEET

Posted Posted in 2019, Advertising, Environment, Essentials, Exploring Hudson Valley, Health & Wellness, Homes and Gardens, Hudson Valley, Hudson Valley Style, Organic Living, Outdoor Living, Sponsored Content, Wellness

Turned out, Picaridin (chemical pesticide found in many insect repellents) not only repells mosquitos, temporarily comforting consumers but also kills predators like salamanders that control the populations of mosquitos, hence permanently increasing the number of mosquitos in the habitat. What a clever idea! Spray Picaridin bug spray to get rid of bugs, then go back to the store and buy more since the number of mosquitos will increase. By harming mosquito predators, picaridin may help mosquitoes survive “Insect repellents containing picaridin can be lethal to salamanders. So reports a new study published in Biology Letters that investigated how exposure to two common […]

But what is “too much”? Take a look at this checklist and let’s find out together if you fall into this category… […]

We’ve been there before: tobacco, lead, DEET, and now Picaridin! Big Box stores along with Big Pharma are selling lethal poison to consumers wrapped in sweet and shiny marketing. In recent years awareness of the health and environmental dangers caused by the chemical pesticide DEET has increased dramatically and it has led to a dramatic decline in sales of insect repellents containing the poisonous pollutant. The chemical industry had to synthesize something fresh, new, and cheap, so they did: marketed as a “safer alternative to DEET” pesticide Picaridin has become a staple in chemical insect repellents.
