One glaring disadvantage of pesticides' application is that, while destroying harmful pests, they also wipe out many useful non-targeted organisms, which keep the growth of the pest population in check. This results in what agroecologists call the 'treadmill syndrome'. Because of their tremendous breeding potential and genetic diversity, many pests are known to withstand synthetic chemicals and bear offspring with a built-in resistance to pesticides.
Disadvantage of pesticides' application:
Wipe out useful non-targeted organisms(control growth of pest)→ 'treadmill syndrome'
Tremendous breeding potential + genetic diversity→withstand synthetic chemicals & bear offspring with built-in resistance
1. 因果(逻辑连接词: BECAUSE OF)
Their tremendous breeding potential and genetic diversity.
Many pests are known to withstand synthetic chemicals and bear offspring with a built-in resistance to pesticides.
