Pesticide-Free IPM & Prohibition Is Re-Imposed
Canandaigua is a city in Ontario County, New York, with a population of over 10,000.
City council voted AGAINST repealing moratorium [ i.e. prohibition ] on pesticides in parks.
On October 5th, 2017, an eight-year-long debate on the use of pesticides in the city of Canandaigua’s parks ended with the city STAYING THE COURSE [ by re-imposing pesticide-free IPM policy & prohibition against conventional pest control products ].
After a heated volley of opposing positions, City Council members voted NOT to repeal a five-year pesticide moratorium [ and re-impose its pesticide-free IPM policy & prohibition, ] just a year and a half after it was enacted.
A divided council defeated the resolution to repeal the five-year pesticide moratorium [ and re-imposed pesticide-free IPM policy & prohibition against conventional pest control products ].
Pesticide-Free IPM & Prohibition Is Stunningly Expensive
According to councilmember Cindy Wade ―
I think it’s totally irresponsible to maintain this moratorium [ i.e. pesticide-free IPM policy & prohibition ].
We tried it for a year.
We heard from our staff that DOES NOT RECOMMEND THIS at all.
[ In other words, municipal staff informed councilmembers that IPM DOES NOT WORK ! ]
The vote was triggered in early September when City Department of Public Works staff described the STUNNINGLY EXORBITANT COSTS of the reckless prohibition, saying it was …
• three times more expensive,
• required more labor, and
• was much less effective …
[ In fact ALL communities that have imposed pesticide-free IPM & prohibition have complained that it is MORE expensive, requires MORE labour, and is EXTEREMELY LESS effective. ]
Pesticide-Free IPM & Prohibition Is A Failure
The [ failed ] IPM policy was developed in conjunction with …
• [ the incompetent ] Cornell Cooperative Extension, and
• [ the fanatжcal ] Canandaigua Lake Watershed Council Program Manager Kevin Olvany.
[ IPM is developed & promoted by people who falsely allege success, and who are likely concocting lies, misconceptions, and deceptions for their own nefarious personal interests. ]
In fact, reports have already surfaced concerning the FAILURE of pesticide-free IPM in Canandaigua. http://wp.me/p1jq40-aE0 ―
Parks staff are dealing with MORE WEEDS and pest damage a year into the moratorium.
And city parks staff are having to deal with MORE WEEDS AND PESTS.
An organic herbicide sprayed in landscape beds in Kershaw Park and the City Pier was INEFFECTIVE.
Northeast Park also is showing signs of HEAVY GRUB DAMAGE, leaving a THIN AND WEAK TURF that creates safety issues for those who use the athletic fields there.
Parks staff members WORKED MORE HOURS to control weeds than they did when the pesticide Roundup was applied, which COSTS THREE TIMES LESS than the cost of the herbicide.
[ Wherever IPM is entirely relied upon for the maintenance of green spaces, damaging insects and invasive weeds MAY ONLY BE SLIGHTLY SUPPRESSED, at the expense of plant growth, playing conditions, and appearance. IPM leads to pest-infested GARBAGE DUMPS ! ]
Pesticide-Free IPM & Prohibition Was Opposed By Common-Sense Councilmembers
On October 10th, 2017, councilmembers dug their heels in on both sides of the issue.
[ Common-sense council members oppose pesticide-free IPM & prohibition because it is a FAILURE, as well as a WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY for Canandaigua ! They listened to municipal staff who informed councilmembers that IPM DOES NOT WORK ! ]
CINDY WADE – Common-Sense Councilmember
Councilmember Cindy Wade strongly urged colleagues to …
… use some common sense here.
I find that this is absolutely ridiculous.
If we’re worried about the watershed, let’s NOT forget that we have only three parks that actually drain into the Canandaigua Lake watershed.
Yet 70 PER CENT OF THE LAND that drains into the watershed is AGRICULTURAL and NOT regulated by any type of moratorium.
Councilmember Wade recommended focusing instead on agricultural land-owners and the New York State Boat Launch, where 250 boats are launched each weekend.
MATT MARTIN – Common-Sense Councilmember
Councilman Matt Martin said the opposition to repealing the moratorium [ that would re-impose pesticide-free IPM policy & prohibition against conventional pest control products ] was perplexing.
According to councilmember Martin ―
We’ve heard from our staff, we’ve heard from the experts, we’ve heard from everyone involved.
I don’t understand the rationale, other than that people [ i.e. anti-pesticide lunatжcs ] are worried about the vote in the fall.
Councilmember Martin said the moratorium was a bad idea when it was voted on and it still is, in calling for a repeal http://wp.me/p1jq40-aE0 ―
I don’t want to see us lose any of our assets or resources.
I don’t want to see anybody getting hurt [ by playing on pest-infested & dangerous surfaces ].
Pesticide-Free IPM & Prohibition Was Supported By Fanatжcal & Pesticide-Hating Councilmembers
[ Those councilmembers who are supporting pesticide-free IPM & prohibition are leading Canandaigua to DISMAL FAILURE and GARBAGE DUMP GREEN SPACES ! They ignored municipal staff who informed councilmembers that IPM DOES NOT WORK ! ]
JIM TERWILLIGER – Fanatжcal & Pesticide-Hating Councilmember
According to councilmember Jim Terwilliger ―
One year is too soon to give up and go back to what we were doing before. [ i.e. back to using conventional pest control products that are safe and effective. ]
It’s far too early for Council to throw in the towel and essentially waive what was a significant [ reckless, arbitrary, & fanatжcal ] piece of legislation for us.
I think there are other approaches [ i.e. green alternative pesticides that DO NOT WORK ] out there that we haven’t tried.
[ Terwilliger seems to forget that IPM and green alternatives SUCK because they DO NOT WORK ! ]
KAREN WHITE – Fanatжcal & Pesticide-Hating Councilmember
Councilmember Karen White said the council had made a promise to the community last year that they would commit to five years [ of pesticide-free IPM policy & prohibition ] to make parks safe and healthy for pets and families [ ?!?! ], and she wouldn’t be supporting the resolution to repeal the moratorium [ i.e. re-impose pesticide-free IPM policy & prohibition ].
[ White seems to forget that IPM SUCKS because it DOES NOT WORK ! ]
ANITA TWITCHEL – Fanatжcal & Pesticide-Hating Councilmember
According to councilmember Anita Twitchell ―
I don’t think re-litigating the past is what we’re here for.
The important thing is we have to listen to what the people want.
Every door I knock on, when I mention that they want to take away the moratorium, people are upset.
I’m going to continue to do what the people of Canandaigua want me to do, and honor my commitment.
[ Twitchell seems to forget that REAL EXPERTS say IPM SUCKS because it DOES NOT WORK ! ]
DAVE WHITCOMB – Fanatжcal & Pesticide-Hating Councilmember
To councilmember Dave Whitcomb, the choice was obvious ―
We’ve spent years discussing this issue, and the result of that is the Integrated Pest Management ( IPM ) [ which is known to be a DISMAL FAILURE ].
It allows for some use of pesticides, and it’s a very low-frequency dose. [ ?!?! ]
[ An IPM policy is just another way of imposing reckless, arbitrary, & fanatжcal prohibition. ]
It’s the result of people much smarter than me [ ?!?! ], much more knowledgeable than me [ ?!?! ].
And what I do know is you find the right people [ ?!?! ], you put them in the right positions, and they’ll make the right decisions [ ?!?! ].
KATHY RAYBURN – Fanatжcal & Pesticide-Hating Resident
Canandaigua resident Kathy Rayburn was among many who spoke out from the audience [ at the council meeting ].
According to Rayburn ―
I was very proud of the city when it enacted the moratorium. [ ?!?! ]
I just want them to continue to keep at it. [ ?!?! ]
I want the city to be a shining light of saying we’ve done everything we can. [ ?!?! ]
But we need the four more years to do that. [ ?!?! ]
[ Rayburn seems to forget that IPM SUCKS no matter how long you keep at it, because it DOES NOT WORK ! ]

Children Are Safer With Pesticides
Non-expert pesticide-hating enviro-fanatжcs ( some councilmembers & residents ) in Canandaigua are WRONG !
Conventional pest control products are scientifically-safe, and will NOT cause harm to children in Canandaigua.
Allegations about the imaginary danger to children are totally false, and are untrue mis-representations designed to alarm and enrage the public for mere money and profit given to anti-pesticide & environmental-terrorist organizations.
The risk assessment of conventional pest control products indicates that they are scientifically-safe, and, when used properly, will NOT cause harm to children, people, animals, or the environment.
IPM WILL HARM CHILDREN in Canandaigua since IPM WILL NOT WORK !
CANANDAIGUA’S CHILDREN ARE SAFER WITH PESTICIDES !

IPM is promoted by people who falsely allege success, and who are likely concocting lies, misconceptions, and deceptions for their own nefarious personal interests.
Moreover, using IPM accomplishes virtually nothing in terms of resolving the public affairs issues concerning the prohibition of conventional pest control products.
Pesticide-free IPM will never achieve the level of total reduction or elimination of destructive pests attained by using conventional pest control products.
In practice, IPM may be more useful in providing some limited improvement towards the efficiency and effectiveness of conventional pest control products.
IPM is a dismal failure !

WE SPEAK THE WHOLE TRUTH ABOUT INTEGRATED PEST MANAGEMENT FROM AN INDEPENDENT PERSPECTIVE !
We are the National Organization Responding Against HUJE that conspire to destroy the Green space and other industries ( NORAHG ). As a non-profit and independent organization, we are environmentalists who are dedicated to reporting about truth-challenged pesticide-hating fanatжcs ( HUJE ) who conspire to destroy businesses that are dependent on the use of safe and effective conventional pest control products. We also report on the work of several highly-rated leading experts who have recognized expertise, training, and background in matters concerning pest control products, and who promote environmental realism and pesticide truths.
Not surprisingly, enviro-fanatжcs have demonstrated that they are incapable of processing overwhelming scientific evidence. Should we trust these fanatжcs, who conveniently ignore scientific evidence, and attempt to impose their politicized-doctrines and twisted life-style choices against our society ?!?!
NORAHG was the brainchild of Mr William H Gathercole and his colleagues in 1991. Mr Gathercole is now retired, although his name continues to appear as founder.
