Everett, Washington, Pesticide Ban – Prohibition Reversed – Resident Weed Picking Volunteers – 2012 06 06

Everett, Washington

Everett is a coastal city in the State of Washington, with a population of over 100,000.

Everett is home to Boeing’s assembly plant for the 747, 767, 777, & the new 787 in the largest building in the world by volume at 116.5 million cubic feet.

Located on the western banks of the Snohomish River, the community of LOWELL exists within the larger City of Everett.

A burst of town pride gave birth to LOWELL PARK when members of the Lowell Civic Association volunteered their time to clear land for this purpose.

In 1966 the park was given to the City of Everett.

Everett Resumes Spraying

The Lowell Park Pesticide-Free Pilot-Project ENDED in May 2012, & the city of Everett, Washington, RESUMED SPRAYING WEEDS WITH CONVENTIONAL PRODUCTS.

The effort to keep Lowell Neighborhood Park as pesticide-free CAME TO AN END in May 2012 when the city BEGAN SPRAYING PARTS OF THE PARK ONCE AGAIN.

The Lowell Civic Association maintained the entire 10-acre park pesticide-free since 2010 under a MISGUIDED EFFORT led by association vice-chair Megan Dunn.

The neighborhood agreed to let the parks department spray in the park.

The application of pest control products was resumed because NOT ENOUGH VOLUNTEERS COULD KEEP THE PARK UP TO CITY STANDARDS.

It was TOO MUCH WORK FOR VOLUNTEERS to maintain the whole park, Dunn said.

Without the use of conventional pest control products, city of Everett was forced to resort to the BACK-BREAKING & AGONIZING JOB OF WEED PULLING BY HAND !

――

RESIDENT WEED-PICKING VOLUNTEERS, most of whom are elderly & unemployed, were forced to work as back-breaking cotton-pickers.

Volunteers were needed because green alternative pesticides were BOGUS & DID NOT WORK !

It is now common-knowledge that there are NO viable, NO efficacious, NO economical, & NO low-risk alternatives to replace conventional pest control products.

The city began spraying herbicide along the fences & curb lines of the park the week of May 7th, 2012.

The city plans to spray the park’s turf by the end of May to get rid of the moss & to restore it.

Weeds & insects DAMAGE TURF shortly after any municipality has PROHIBITED the use of pest control products.

Because of anti-pesticide PROHIBITION, municipal parks and sport fields are OVER-RUN BY WEEDS, & MUST BE TOTALLY RENOVATED since they are in an UNUSABLE CONDITION FOR PLAYING SAFELY.

FAILURE OF ORGANIC PESTICIDE-FREE MAINTENANCE ( Web-Page )

Government officials, the green space industry, & the public were DUPED by anti-pesticide extremists who FALSELY ALLEGED that so-called safe & effective green alternative pesticides were / are already available to replace conventional pest control products.  [ WRONG ! ]

There are NO viable, NO efficacious, NO economical, & NO low-risk alternatives to replace conventional pest control products.

It is IMPOSSIBLE for home-owners or professionals to keep their properties beautiful by using so-called green alternative pesticides.

In many cases, green alternative pesticides are questionably HIGHER IN TOXICITY, & pose HIGHER ENVIRONMENTAL RISKS.

A well-maintained conventional lawn & landscape can ONLY BE ACHIEVED WITH CONVENTIONAL PEST CONTROL PRODUCTS.

Fortunately, CONVENTIONAL pest control products are SAFE, EFFECTIVE, ECONOMICAL, & LOW-RISK.

Back-Breaking Cotton-Picking Work

Municipal Employees Treated Like Cotton-Pickers

Without the use of conventional pest control products, anti-pesticide jurisdictions were / are FORCED TO RESORT TO THE BACK-BREAKING & AGONIZING JOB OF WEED PULLING BY HAND !

Municipal employees have been DEVALORIZED INTO A GROUP OF MERE COTTON-PICKERS.

This is because green alternative pesticides are BOGUS & DO NOT WORK !

Consequently, government officials are RAPIDLY REVERTING BACK TO CONVENTIONAL PEST CONTROL PRODUCTS.

Because of the FAILURE OF ORGANIC PESTICIDE-FREE MAINTENANCE, municipal employees have had to resort to the BACK-BREAKING & AGONIZING JOB of WEED PULLING BY HAND USING SCRAPERS & HOES !

Municipal employees are DEMANDING that anti-pesticide PROHIBITIONS BE RESCINDED so that they can be allowed to use conventional pest control products.

Municipal employees want to stop being treated like COTTON-PICKERS.

Pest control products are SCIENTIFICALLY SAFE, & will NOT CAUSE HARM TO PEOPLE, ANIMALS OR THE ENVIRONMENT.

In ALL Anti-Pesticide jurisdictions where WEED PULLING BY HAND is used, government officials RAPIDLY REVERT BACK to conventional products.

Back-Breaking Cotton-Picking Work

Volunteers Treated Like Cotton-Pickers

Municipalities CANNOT AFFORD THE HIGH COST of manual labour required for WEED PULLING BY HAND.

Because of the FAILURE OF ORGANIC PESTICIDE-FREE MAINTENANCE, government officials are forced to enlist the help of RESIDENT WEED-PICKING VOLUNTEERS, most of whom are elderly & unemployed.

Resident volunteers have had to resort to the BACK-BREAKING & AGONIZING JOB OF WEED PULLING BY HAND !

Moreover, resident volunteers rapidly become dis-interested to volunteer their time in a LOSING BATTLE AGAINST WEEDS.

In ALL anti-pesticide jurisdictions where volunteers are used, government officials RAPIDLY REVERT BACK to conventional products.
