Bugs - Getting rid of 'em
Do you remember when you'd hear your neighbor had bought some pest traps they put up in their yard?
Often, they employed a sexual attractant, a chemical called a pheromone. The theory was that whatever bugs were in your yard would be drawn into the trap, and the pests would be gone! A lovely theory that one, right? The promise was so great and the price was low...
Well, it sounded good, but the idea is so wrong! Pheromone can be detected by many pests even miles away. Every bug in creation practically was being invited to come to their yard! True, many turned up dead in the traps, but 10 times that many are in that back yard. It would have been much better to buy a repellent.
