The best solution to the problem with pesticide contamination would be to cease use of pesticides all together. For many reasons, that will not happen. A more feasible approach to solving this problem is to control pesticide use. This can be done by targeting the specific areas where pesticides are needed and only using them there instead of dispersing them over a wide area of land. Another way to halt pesticide contamination and further it from destroying the environment is to suspend irrigation for a few days after the pesticides have been sprayed. This will help in keeping the pesticides from spreading to surrounding areas and contaminating ground water. Keeping records of the quantity and frequency of pesticide use will aid in avoiding overuse of them. At home, people can help by using natural, non-toxic products. Overall, reducing the usage of pesticides will prevent future problems with the environment and natural disasters.
