Am I overreacting? Re: tick spray and hydroseeding
I am livid and basically devastated. I work really hard to keep a natural home and organic gardens. The ticks have been really bad this year so we decided we’d have to get an all-natural oil spray treatment like we did a couple years back. We even got the “ok” from our bee people (we have 2 hives). The company came yesterday and after they left we found out that they used – in error – their conventional, chemical spray. They use two pyrethroids which are extremely toxic to bees. I also keep organic gardens and I feel like they are totally ruined. In addition to the tick spray, my husband also decided he needed to get the lawn hydroseeded. He found some local guy who convinced him that he was all organic and he had it arranged without telling me. I came home today and our lawn is bright green!! I was so upset! Is there any way this is remotely natural?!
I can only wait and see with the poor bees. But I feel like just giving up on my gardens this year. Am I overreacting? The in-ground garden isn’t planted yet. I have seeds/sprouts and dill in an elevated planter and some herbs growing back in the raised beds. So… I need some perspective here please!
