Overview

 

 

A SIGN that is POSTED on the property after an application is a courtesy appreciated by the customer and neighbors, and an opportunity for some good advertising.

 

Pest control products are BIO-DEGRADABLE, SAFE TO USE, and NONE ARE LISTED AS EITHER CARCINOGENS OR PROBABLE CARCINOGENS.

 

The issue with weeds is that they REPLACE GRASS, DO NOT WITHSTAND FOOT TRAFFIC, and PLASTIC CLEATS CAN SLIP ON THEIR SURFACES.

 

The City of Kelowna has concluded that the loss of pest control products would ADD 700,000 DOLLARS TO THE MAINTENANCE COST OF THEIR FIELDS.

The use of pest control products PROMOTES SAFETY, ENHANCES APPEARANCE, and REDUCES MAINTENANCE.

 

There is NO REQUIREMENT TO WEAR A BREATHING APPARATUS for the application of pest control products in the Urban Landscape.

 

The widespread belief that common lawn and garden products cause harm when used as directed is based on « chemophobia » and a LACK OF SCIENTIFIC LITERACY.

 

 

 

Facts On Pesticide Use

 

 

June 11th, 2012

Steven E. Boultbee

Letter to the Editor

The Daily News

Kamloops, British Columbia

Selected and Adapted Excerpts

 

 

Boultbee is President of Boultbee Vegetation Management in Penticton, British Columbia

 

 

 

I would like to respond to [ Anti-Pesticide Green Party ] Councillor Donovan Cavers regarding the use of pest control products in the urban environment ( « Pesticide exposure harmful to health » ).

 

 

 

Protective Equipment and Sign-Posting

 

 

Cavers has correctly pointed out that when a pest control product application is made to a home  …

 

●   PROTECTIVE CLOTHING is worn, in the form of rubber boots and gloves and coveralls.  There is NO REQUIREMENT TO WEAR A BREATHING APPARATUS for the application.

 

●   A SIGN is POSTED on the property after the application.  This has become a standard in the Professional Lawn Care Industry.  It is a courtesy appreciated by the customer and neighbors and an opportunity for some good advertising.  The neighbours will know who to call to get a lawn as green as the one next door.

 

●   And on the sign, it will say to keep off the lawn until after the spray is dried, which is usually just a few minutes.

 

 

 

Pesticides Reduce Fossil Fuel Consumption

 

 

Pest control products available in Canada for landscape and garden uses are BIO-DEGRADABLE, SAFE TO USE, AND NONE ARE LISTED AS EITHER CARCINOGENS OR PROBABLE CARCINOGENS by Health Canada or the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

Pest control products are part of a program to prevent pests and disease in both backyard applications and agriculture.

 

Pest control products reduce the use of weed eaters and mowers, thereby REDUCING FOSSIL FUEL consumed by gardeners and municipalities.

 

If the Department of Highways were to use these chemicals, a single sprayer could replace 10 mowers.

 

If we can use pest control products on our lawns, then why not use them on the edge of highways ?

Pesticides Are Necessary

 

 

Depending on the point of view, dandelions may or may not be unsightly.

 

The issue with this weed is that it REPLACES GRASS, DOES NOT WITHSTAND FOOT TRAFFIC, AND PLASTIC CLEATS CAN SLIP ON ITS SURFACE.

 

With traffic, the weed dies, CREATING A DANGEROUS HOLE IN THE FIELD.

 

The use of pest control products PROMOTES SAFETY, ENHANCES APPEARANCE, and REDUCES MAINTENANCE.

 

The City of Kelowna has concluded that the loss of pest control products would ADD 700,000 DOLLARS TO THE MAINTENANCE COST OF THEIR FIELDS.

Special Committee On Cosmetic Pesticides

 

 

Bill Bennett, who chaired the Special Committee On Cosmetic Pesticides, said THE MOST COMPELLING TESTIMONY came from a representative of HEALTH CANADA, the government agency that approves such products for use across the country.

 

The committee was told that British Columbia was the first province to ask Health Canada before considering such a ban, and that imposing one would be A POLITICAL RATHER THAN A PUBLIC HEALTH CHOICE, Bennett said.

 

Bennett noted that only five per cent of all pest control product are used in the household, with products diluted 100 times or more below the level that shows effects in the most sensitive animal species.

 

The widespread belief that common lawn and garden products cause harm when used as directed is based on « chemophobia » and a LACK OF SCIENTIFIC LITERACY, Bennett said.

Background Information from an Independent Perspective

 

 

 

Some Protective Equipment Is NOT Needed

 

 

While watching a Professional Lawn Care applicator perform his tasks, Non-Expert Anti-Pesticide Activists state that « applicators must wear a respirator or mask ».

 

Anti-Pesticide Activists ATTEMPT TO IMPLY that the applicator is improperly protected, and needs to wear a mask or a respirator.

 

Anti-Pesticide Activists are INCORRECT !

 

In fact, the applicator is NOT required to wear a mask or a respirator because IT IS NOT NECESSARY.

 

All pest control products applied by Professional Lawn Care companies DO NOT require RESPIRATORY PROTECTION such as masks or respirators.

 

The instructions for using these products, including the requirements for personal protection, are clearly indicated on the label.

 

To ensure applicator safety, the label states what personal protective equipment needs to be worn when applying the product.

 

However, ALL pest control products used by Professional Lawn Care companies are considered as EYE and SKIN IRRITANTS, and personal protective equipment, such as pants and rubber boots, may be required for the applicator.

 

Nonetheless, NO pest control products used by Professional Lawn Care companies require the use of respiratory protection for the applicator.

 

 

 

NO Scientific Justification for Sign-Posting

 

 

SIGN-POSTING was adopted by the Professional Lawn Care Industry almost 25 years ago, NOT as a health and safety issue, but as an APPEASEMENT issue.

 

In 1987 and 1988, the Professional Lawn Care Industry in both the Provinces of Quebec and Ontario VOLUNTARILY ADOPTED SIGN-POSTING POLICIES. 

 

For years, Anti-Pesticide Activists had DEMANDED SIGN-POSTING with NO scientific justification ! 

 

Moreover, Anti-Pesticide Activists had also DEMANDED signs which prominently displayed the IMAGE OF A SKULL, again, with NO scientific justification !

 

As an alternative to the IMAGE OF A SKULL, a sign with the internationally recognizable symbol of DO NOT WALK was proposed, and finally accepted by Government Officials.

 

Sign-posting policies were originally adopted by the Professional Lawn Care Industry in the MISTAKEN BELIEF that it would somehow APPEASE the Anti-Pesticide Activists. 

 

As we all know, Anti-Pesticide Activists were / are NEVER EVER APPEASED.

 

Mr. William H. Gathercole, now retired, is personally credited for the creation of these signs, although he was personally opposed to their use, since the pest control product solutions applied by Professional Lawn Care companies had long been rated as PRACTICALLY-NON-TOXIC and SCIENTIFICALLY-SAFE. 

 

 

 

Pesticide Bans Place Children At Risk !

 

 

Anti-Pesticide Activists are DESPICABLE in their use of CHILDREN as WEAPONS OF COERCION and ULTIMATE TERROR in order to promote Anti-Pesticide PROHIBITION and Organic Food.

 

PESTICIDE BANS that are imposed under the PRETEXT of protecting children’s health is WRONG !

 

Pest control products are SCIENTIFICALLY-SAFE, CAUSE NO HARM, and are NO THREAT TO CHILDREN.

 

In fact, WITH PESTICIDE BANS, children are actually AT HIGH RISK of TRIPPING and becoming SERIOUSLY HURT.

 

Pest control products PREVENT slipping injuries on sports turf.

 

PESTICIDE BANS Create HAZARDOUS SLIPPING CONDITIONS In Sports Turf.

 

These assessments DO consider children’s physiology, behaviours, and habits while playing on treated grass.

 

Moreover, there are NO valid reports of pest control product problems with children.

 

In fact, MEDICATION is the leading cause of poisoning in children.

 

Anti-Pesticide Activists ALLEGE that children are somehow MORE vulnerable to pest control products.

 

This is a MYTH !

Donovan Cavers

 

 

Cavers is a HIGH-RANKING OFFICIAL with Green Party of Canada, with ties to Canadian Cancer Society and Pesticide Free BC  …  all three are Anti-Pesticide Organizations that IMPOSE LIFE-STYLE CHOICES by using FRAUD and CONSPIRACY in order to create a so-called healthy society.

 

Cavers also comes from a family of PROMINENT CAREER ACTIVISTS with Green Party of Canada.

 

Now, as an Elected Government Official with the City of Kamloops, he continues to IMPOSE his LIFE-STYLE CHOICES, as well as ADD PROFIT TO HIS VESTED INTERESTS, by CONSPIRING to PROHIBIT pest control products.

 

Cavers has NO recognized training, education, or credentials in matters concerning pest control products.

 

Because of Caver’s ARBITRARY PESTICIDE BAN PROPOSAL, the owners, employees, and families dependent on Professional Lawn Care businesses face TERROR, DESPAIR, and DESTITUTION.

 

Cavers wants to destroy their businesses, their assets, their customers, their homes, their lifestyles, their job security, their families, their children, their loved-ones, and their futures.

 

Cavers wants to HURL them all into SQUALOR and DESPAIR, forcing them to BURN-IN-HELL in places like Vancouver's East-End.

 

Cavers is an Anti-Pesticide Rapist, of sorts.

Special Committee On Cosmetic Pesticides

 

 

British Columbians DO NOT want their society to continue living in the 9|11 Era of Anti-Pesticide Enviro-Lunatic Profit-Hungry Terrorism !

 

On May 17th, 2012, British Columbia’s Special Committee on Cosmetic Pesticides announced that it WILL NOT RECOMMEND PROHIBITION against the use of pest control products in the Urban Landscape.

 

The Committee made THE RIGHT CHOICE, and deserves CONGRATULATION.

 

This VICTORY signals a possible END OF THE CURRENT SIEGE OF ANTI-PESTICIDE TERRORISM Against the Professional Lawn Care Industry in British Columbia.

 

The public DOES NOT WANT PESTICIDE BANS.

 

A recent POLL conducted by Canadian Consumer Specialty Products Association ( CCSPA ) CONFIRMED that the VAST MAJORITY of residents in British Columbia are OPPOSED to the PROHIBITION of conventional pest control products, and they actually FAVOUR the continued use of these products around their homes and in public green spaces.

 

In jurisdictions outside of British Columbia, PESTICIDE BANS result in CATASTROPHIC CARNAGE caused by BUSINESS FAILURES, GARBAGE DUMP GREEN SPACES, STUNNINGLY EXORBITANT COSTS, HORRIFIC FINES, and even ILLNESS and DEATH.

Anti-Pesticide Terrorism NEVER Ends

 

 

PESTICIDE BANS are DESTROYING the Professional Lawn Care Industry in the Province of British Columbia.

 

Professional Lawn Care companies have been EXTENSIVELY DAMAGED and STAGNATING because of the THREAT and IMPLEMENTATION of the PROHIBITION against pest control products used in the Urban Landscape.

 

As a direct result of MUNICIPAL PESTICIDE BANS, Professional Lawn Care companies have LOST OVER 40 PER CENT OF THEIR CUSTOMERS.

 

 

CARNAGE CAUSED BY CATASTROPHIC ANTI-PESTICIDE PROHIBITION ( Web-Page )

 

http://wp.me/P1jq40-26P

 

 

British Columbia is known for its natural beauty, as well as its RADICAL AND SUBVERSIVE LUNATIC Anti-Pesticide Organizations.

 

Beginning in 2009, when municipalities in British Columbia started to implement PROHIBITION  —  BUSINESS GROWTH STAGNATED.

 

Since 2010, Professional Lawn Care companies have had to REDUCE STAFFING as a DIRECT RESULT of MUNICIPAL ANTI-PESTICIDE PROHIBITIONS.

 

Professional Lawn Care companies have had to basically put ANY MAJOR INVESTMENT INTO THEIR BUSINESSES ON HOLD because of the continued THREAT of PROHIBITION.

 

PROHIBITION takes away all the gains made by Professional Lawn Care businesses in the past ten years, and MAKES IT DIFFICULT, IF NOT IMPOSSIBLE, TO RECOVER.

 

In jurisdictions where PESTICIDE BANS have been IMPOSED, Professional Lawn Care companies have NO REAL GREEN ALTERNATIVE PESTICIDES to use on a commercial basis.

 

Professional Lawn Care customers DEPEND upon conventional pest control products to control damaging pests such as weeds and insects.

 

Unfortunately, THERE ARE NO GREEN ALTERNATIVE PESTICIDES THAT WORK  ―  they are INEFFECTIVE  ―  they are STUNNINGLY HIGH IN COST  ―  you have to use them two, three, four times the recommended rate and frequency to get ANY results out of them.

 

 

GREEN ALTERNATIVES  …  BOGUS & DISMAL FAILURES ( Web-Page )

 

http://wp.me/P1jq40-24g

 

 

Customers are telling Professional Lawn Care businesses that  …  «  If you can’t get rid of my weeds legally, I’ll do it myself.  »

 

Professional Lawn Care companies expect that, in 2012, they WILL CONTINUE TO LOSE MORE BUSINESS DUE TO PROHIBITION.

 

Professional Lawn Care companies have also been EXTENSIVELY DAMAGED and STAGNATING because of ALLEGATIONS Anti-Pesticide Organizations about the IMAGINARY DANGER of pest control products.

 

These ALLEGATIONS are TOTALLY FALSE, and are UNTRUE MIS-REPRESENTATIONS designed to alarm and enrage the public and enhance the CASH-FLOW and PROFIT of Anti-Pesticide Organizations.

STRIKING BACK Against Anti-Pesticide Terrorists

 

 

Everyone in the Green Space Industry  ―  no matter where they live  ―  must meet with their Member of the Legislative Assembly ( MLA ), preferably not from New Democratic Party.

 

In order to meet and inform the MLA, you must donate the maximum amount to the party, which is 1,100 dollars in British Columbia.

 

The cost of this donation is insignificant when compared to the catastrophic business losses inflicted by anti-pesticide prohibition.

 

Any business owner in the Green Space Industry who does not bother to meet with the local MLA is a pitiful fool and an idiot, and does not deserve a career, or a business, or any success.

 

COMPLAIN, COMPLAIN, COMPLAIN.

 

Anti-Pesticide Terrorists are NOT CREDIBLE SOURCES OF INFORMATION upon which political decisions are made  ―  they LIE and LIE and LIE.

 

There is NO RECOURSE but OFFICIAL COMPLAINTS as well as LITIGATION against Anti-Pesticide Terrorists.

 

They DO NOT DESERVE ANY DONATIONS OR SUPPORT.

 

They DO NOT DESERVE ANY GOVERNMENT GRANTS.

 

Nor do they deserve TAX-EXEMPT STATUSES.

 

They DO deserve to FACE THE SPOTLIGHT OF SCRUTINY and THE TERROR OF THE COURTS !

 

Anti-Pesticide Terrorists in organizations like Canadian Cancer Society are presently UNDER INVESTIGATION FOR CHARITY FRAUD AND CONSPIRACY.

 

The Government of Canada DOES NOT want its society to continue living in the 9|11 Era of Anti-Pesticide Enviro-Lunatic Profit-Hungry Terrorism !

 

And neither should anyone in the Green Space Industry.

 

All names, statements, activities, and affiliations have been ARCHIVED for anyone wishing to lodge an OFFICIAL COMPLAINT or lay CRIMINAL CHARGES against Anti-Pesticide Terrorists.

 

On The Pesticide Truths Web-Site, NORAHG manages a VAST ARCHIVE of REPORTS, MEDIA REFERENCES, AUDIO CLIPS, and VIDEOS on ALL Anti-Pesticide Terrorists.

 

We know who they are, and where they are hiding, and what they have said and done.

 

When CRIMINAL CHARGES FOR FRAUD AND CONSPIRACY ARE LAID, legal experts say that the NORAHG ARCHIVE is sufficient to lead to a SUCCESSFUL PROSECUTION against Anti-Pesticide Terrorists !

 

Business owners in the Green Space Industry should talk to their lawyers, members of the legislative assembly, and local media outlets.

 

Thanks to The Pesticide Truths Web-Site, they have all the DOCUMENTED EVIDENCE that they need.

 

LET THESE TERRORISTS FACE THE SPOTLIGHT OF SCRUTINY and THE TERROR OF THE COURTS !

 

Anti-Pesticide Terrorists are GOVERNMENT-FINANCED with TAX-FREE MONEY  ―  they must not be allowed this money to defend themselves in court.

 

Demand a REVOCATION of their organizations’ REGISTERED CHARITY TAX-EXEMPT STATUS !

 

SUE THE BASTERDS’ BRAINS OUT !
