    I use no poisons. I even time worming with chemical wormers for early spring and fall after a hard frost, so I don't kill dung beetles. I only use them otherwise when it is absolutely needed. If we all took care of the insects on our places, it would help. But I wouldn't mind losing cockroaches.....bet they aren't on the extinction list. :he
