Chemical Weed Control Vs. Steam Weeders
Are you torn between using a chemical weed control or using a steam weeder to get rid of weeds from your garden? The comparison below between chemical weed control versus steam weeders will help you decide which one to choose:
Chemical weed control has been associated with poisoning soil biology and damaging soil health over time. On the other hand, steam-treated weeds feed the soil microorganisms, improving the soil microbial activity.
Most herbicides contain harsh chemicals that are hazardous to your health and inhaling them when spraying can significantly affect your health. On the other hand, steam is healthy for your respiratory system.
Most weed-killing chemicals might take several weeks before you start noticing results. On the other hand, steam begins to kill the weeds immediately.
When spraying herbicides, there are higher chances of the spray drifting to off-target areas of your garden.
Sometimes the chemical residue ends up in water bodies and drains, contaminating the groundwater. There might even be a residue effect on the crops, which might end up affecting both humans and pets. On the other hand, steam is vaporised water and can cause no harm.
