    Saskatchewan Environmental Society and its recommendations for the use of Pest Control Concoctions are VIOLATIONS OF FEDERAL LAW !

     

    When Saskatchewan Environmental Society recommends material with the claim that it controls pests, it technically becomes a pest control product.

     

    Its Pest Control Concoctions are not only DANGEROUS, they are ILLEGAL.

     

    It is a VIOLATION OF FEDERAL LAW for Saskatchewan Environmental Society to recommend products for controlling pests that are NOT registered under the Pest Control Products Act.

     

    Such a claim by Saskatchewan Environmental Society regarding UNREGISTERED products becomes technically a VIOLATION OF FEDERAL LAW.

    Its Pest Control Concoctions are BOGUS, and are NOT SCIENTIFICALLY TESTED, and PUT CHILDREN AND ADULTS AT RISK.

     

    Most are NOT valid and effective.

     

    Saskatchewan Environmental Society’s Concoctions are NOT subject to stringent, science-based assessments, and are NOT supported by scientific research and documentation.

    Investigations by Health Canada include the ILLEGAL RECOMMENDATIONS of Pest Control Concoctions.
