Be aware that chemical companies dump products in the DR that are illegal in the USA and Canada. They have
extremely high levels of carcinogens. That makes them very effective pesiticides, insecticides and herbicides.
They have to be applied properly, handled properly, and you need proper protective gear when handling and
The DR climate works to your advantage because the intense rainfall, sunshine, and heat breaks down the toxins
quickly, usually within 24 to 96 hours after application depending on the product.
I stay at a resort for the winter and they spray the rooms and grounds frequently. I specifically request they
don't spray my room while I'm there. I've checked on the products they use and they have very high toxin levels.
They use Roundup to clear ground cover rather than large lawn mowers or whipper snippers.
