Dear Extremespin, My advise is don't worry about it. There are a lot more things than this ,believe me. Like American Politicians .
I have been growing vegetable and a few fruit trees on my property for 45 years. I use "chemicals" to kill weeds occasionally , when I don't feel like getting the Weedeater (spinning nylon on the end of a handle). Also use them to prevent Codling Moth on my Apple trees.It I didn't there would only be Moth Eaten Apples.
Use Chemical Fertilisers on the Trees and Vegetables regularly. My soil is in good condition , a lot better than when I started-and I do use lots of Compost.
I have done this for the whole 45 years I have been growing my own crops.
My Father used the same ideas for 42 years on his garden.
I usually get good results, for example this year my Granny Smith Apple and Golden Delicious have each had such a heavy crop I am overwhelmed by it.
To me, this worry about "Chemicals" is unfounded , and nourished by the "Envirenmental" mob..
In my Father's time and the early part of my Gardening we used Lead Arsenate,Nicotine Sulphate(Blackleaf 40) and DDT. No detrimental effects on the Bees , his large number of Fruit Trees produced good crops.
