Bad On the environment
Spraying has a lot of effects but most of these effects affect mainly the land and the insects and sometimes the plants. They affect the land because when you put the sprays it kills the energy’s and the food and wastes the land so it stops working and for that fertilizers are used. Using sprays also causes dead insects and that is the point of the farmers or who ever is using those sprays but those insects are very useful to the world especially us because they are part of our food chain; for example sea weeds get energy from the ground and the sun (Photosynthesis) then they are eaten by the fish which are eaten by a larger fish and finally to the humans. Sometimes small insects eat the weeds and for that humans put sprays on.
