Safer Gardening & Legionnaire's Disease
Gardening is a popular hobby which is enjoyed by countless New Zealanders, and is great for helping people relax and escape the stresses of life.
Working in your garden also provides plenty of enjoyment and of course all important exercise. The significant rise in interest in fruit and veggies grown at home in recent years has added to many people’s overall gardening enjoyment, and it’s had the added benefit of helping them to stretch their budgets further.
The all important ingredient, soil, is packed full of living organisms which are beneficial to plants and which generally cause no harm to animals or people.
This same soil, however, does contain some specific organisms that can be harmful to a small number of people if simple precautions are not taken.
One of these harmful organism is a specific strand of Legionella bacteria which can be commonly in the environment around your home.
This unique organism has been proven to cause the unpleasant Legionnaires’ disease in a select number of people.
See the PDF guide to the right (click the image) to learn a few simple and natural steps to reduce that risk while continuing to enjoy your garden.
