I am writing to complain about the Cataway that I purchased from you in July. It is not working correctly.
I received the product on 23rd March. Following the instructions in the box, I carefully set up the Cataway in the corner of our garden. I allowed it to charge for the required 6 hours before turning it on.

This was not very pleasant. I purchased this product to get rid of cats, not to provide outdoor showering facilities for my family. I would either like this faulty product replaced with a working version or a full refund on the money I have wasted. I expect to receive a response to my letter within 14 working days or I will seek legal advice.

There is no one best way to deal with pests in agriculture. Pesticides are commonly used, but this may cause many problems.
Combining different management operations is the most effective way to control pests.
Firstly, the chemicals in pesticides may build up as residues in the environment. This reduces the quality of farm‟s products.
As well, pests can become resistant to pesticides gradually. This means that newer and stronger ones have to be developed.
Some pesticides affect non target animals such as fish and bees. This affects the natural balance.
To wipe out agricultural pests completely may be very expensive. Sometimes pest damage costs less than the method of control.
Finally, understanding the ecology of the area helps a lot in pest control. Natural enemies can be used to control a pest. Pesticides that do not affect the natural enemies should be chosen.
