There are far reaching effects from poisons.

I have another acquaintance who sprays her Fuchsias for mites. 
Unfortunately the miticide also kills the humming birds who carry the 
mites from plant to plant.

Most Fuchsia species aren't affected by the mites, but the hybrids 
that are, I just chomp them back.
I plant a lot of species.
