France bans usage of pesticides great news for French property owners


France is banning usage of Pesticides privately and publicly!

I was shocked to find out that France is one of the top sellers of chemical pesticides in all of Europe.

You will see the details here. 

With all the beautiful flowers and vineyards, this is not good to hear.


As of 2017 French law prohibits the usage of synthetic pesticides in France in public places by professionals with the exception of graveyards. In 2019 this law expands to private gardeners. So over the counter purchase of chemical pesticides will no longer be available then.

Watch the brief news report below.
