The Imposition Of Portland’s Prohibition

 

 

Portland is the most populous city in the U.S. state of Maine, with a population of almost 67,000. 

 

The city of Portland, Oregon was named after Portland, Maine. 

 

On January 3rd, 2018, Portland’s city council approved a reckless & arbitrary PROHIBITION against the use of conventional pest control products for outdoor pest management on both city-owned and private properties. 

 

The lunatжc pesticide-hating councillors voted 9-0 to approve the PROHIBITION after a one-hour workshop that was followed by a lengthy debate on 10 proposed amendments to the proposed law. 

 

Two amendments passed, one of which set the PROHIBITION’s start date for July 1st, 2018. 

 

It means that Portland will start using bogus organic pesticides on all city-owned properties beginning summer 2018. 

 

According to Ethan Strimling, the lunatжc pesticide-hating mayor   

 

It was a lot of work that took place over a lot of months, but I think the people of Portland should be VERY PROUD.  *

 

*  The lunatжc-mayor is PROUD of the PROHIBITION for what reasons ?!?!  See later segment for the facts concerning the expected failures of prohibition in Portland, Maine. 

 

 

Background Information

 

GREEN ALTERNATIVE PESTICIDES ARE NOT SAFER & DO NOT WORK ! 

 

There are NO alternatives that work.  Prohibition is somehow validated by pesticide-hating fanatжcs who merely concoct MYTHS against conventional products.  When it comes to controlling pests, the use of safe and effective conventional pest control products should be a no-brainer.  Anti-pesticide prohibition leads to the catastrophic problems of weed invasion and insect infestation.  It is impossible for professionals, and even home-owners, to protect their properties by using so-called green alternative pesticides.  There are NO viable, NO efficacious, NO economical, and NO low-risk alternatives to replace conventional pest control products.  Green alternative pesticides are BOGUS AND DISMAL FAILURES    they DO NOT work and they are NOT innovative products.  By definition, ALTERNATIVES ARE INFERIOR, which is why they did NOT win the market-place originally.  Overall, green alternative pesticides are ineffective, inadequate, inferior, high-risk, more toxic, and stunningly expensive !  In many cases, green alternative pesticides are questionably higher in toxicity, and pose higher environmental risks.  Green alternative pesticides and even organic fertilizers often contain living pathogenic organisms, fermented materials, or metals that may be deemed unsafe for children, adults, and the environment.  Conventional pest control products are absolutely necessary.  Fortunately, conventional pest control products are safe, effective, economical, and low-risk.

FACT Unfortunately, Portland’s Prohibition Has Been Disgustingly Arbitrary In Its Flagrant Discrimination Against Professional Lawn Care Businesses That Have Been Provided With NO Exception Status Whatsoever, & That Face Assured Destruction

 

FACT Portland Has Imposed Fanatжcal-Prohibition Uner The False-Pretext That Residents & The Environment Are Somehow Being Protected

 

FACT Prohibition Has Been Prominently Validated By Elected Officials With The False-Assumption That Inferior Green Alternatives Can Somehow Replace Conventional Pest Control Products

 

FACT City Councillors Will Quickly Recognize That Green Alternative Pesticides & Practices Are Dismal Failures Not Only Because Of Their Stunning Costs, But Also Because Of Their Lack Of Effectiveness

 

FACT Portland’s Prohibition Will Cause Uncontrollable Pest Problems That Will Lead To The Imminent Demise Of Green Spaces Which Will Degrade To Dangerous Pest-Infested Garbage Dumps

 

FACT Additionally, Portland Has Allowed Hundreds Of Inconsistent & Unfair Exception Statuses

 

FACT Over The Course Of Years, Portland’s Prohibition Will Allow Inconsistent & Unfair Exception Statuses, Including Hundreds Of Pesticide Applications On Hadlock Field, Riverside Golf Course, & Five Athletic Fields On Fox Street, At Deering High School, Deering Oaks Park, & Payson Park

 

FACT There Should Be NO #@!!% Exception Statuses Whatsoever

 

FACT  On City-Owned Properties, Portland’s Prohibition Will Cost An Exorbitant $700,000 For Pesticide-Free Maintenance, To Replace The Sports Field Turf Because Of Uncontrollable & Destructive Pest Infestations, & $30,000 Per Year For Additional Staff Time For Manual Weed-Picking & Expensive Green Alternative Pesticides That Do Not Work

 

FACT Portland’s Pesticide-Hating Elected Officials Will Be Managing A Failed Prohibition Because It Is Extremely Biased, Highly Prejudicial, Inconsistent, Unfair, Subversive, & Stunningly Expensive  –  & Neither Residents Nor The Environment Will Be Better Protected

The Exorbitant Cost Of Portland’s Prohibition

 

 

The Cost Of Prohibition Will Be $700,000

 

 

Municipal staff looked into WHAT IT WILL COST TO IMPOSE PROHIBITION on city-owned properties. 

 

A memo presented to city council made an initial implementation estimate of nearly $450,000, and other potential expenses could add almost another $250,000. 

 

In addition to the costs related to implementing Organic Pesticide-Free Management detailed in the regulations, the memo to councillors estimated the cost of possible turf replacement at the five fields between $100,000 and $250,000, because conventional ( i.e. synthetic ) pest control products will be PROHIBITIED. 

 

The memo detailed implementation costs of $25,000 for the education, training and outreach associated with the new regulations; $40,000 to fund a sustainability associate part-time position, and $60,000 to fund a full-time position for someone to focus on soil care and aeration, seeding and applying liquid organics. 

 

The memo also outlines about $300,000 for new equipment, irrigation systems, and tanks and mixing systems for liquid organics. 

 

NO ONE CAN AFFORD THIS #@!!% BAN NONSENSE !

The Waivers Of Portland’s Prohibition

 

 

The use of certain conventional products ( i.e. synthetics ), including herbicides, would be PROHIBITED, unless a waiver is granted by a new Pesticide Management Advisory Committee. 

 

Organic pesticides and allowed conventional products ( i.e. synthetics ) listed on the U.S. Department of Agriculture National List of Allowed and Prohibited Substances would be permitted.

The Exception Statuses Of Portland’s Prohibition

 

 

Predictably, Riverside Municipal Golf Course and Hadlock Field would be provided with an UNFAIR EXCEPTION STATUS from the PROHIBITION, at least until 2021. 

 

Also, until January 1st, 2021, UNFAIR EXCEPTION STATUSES are being provided to five city-owned athletic fields on Fox Street, at Deering High School, Payson Park, Deering Oaks Park and Payson Park. 

 

If it is safe for children to walk and play on these pesticide-treated fields, then why would it not be safe for children to walk and play on pesticide-treated private properties ?!?! 

 

THERE SHOULD BE NO #@!!% EXCEPTION STATUSES WHATSOEVER ! 

 

 

 

――――――――――――――――――――

Riverside Municipal Golf Course

 

 

In June 2017, golf course supervisor Gene Pierotti said the reductions were achieved by limiting treatments on the course’s 27 holes to once every three years, with treatments made on a rotating basis. 

 

According to Pierotti   

 

It has been very expensive to shift, but cost is not really a factor, and the course has never been better.  * 

 

*  Background Information

 

REDUCTIONS BY THE GOLF COURSE ?!?! 

 

Really ?!?!  Observers find it difficult to believe Pierotti since, as an employee of a lunatic pesticide-hating municipal government, he is expected ONLY to VALIDATE PROHIBITION.  In essence, Pierotti is WRONG !  Limiting treatments will INEVITABLY lead to POOR PLAYING CONDITIONS.  And besides, Pierotti does not mention that disease-control treatments will still continue to be performed on a frequent basis.  Moreover, it is IMPOSSIBLE for golf courses to keep their facilities playable and attractive by using so-called green alternative pesticides and practices.  Alternative methods of pest control are INEFFECTIVE, and CANNOT BE RELIED UPON to properly maintain golf facilities. 

 

There should be NO exception status for golf facilities.  The golf facilities in Portland employ the VERY SAME INGREDIENTS that are used to control damaging pests on city-owned and residential properties.  In order to be CONSISTENT and FAIR, Portland must provide NO EXCEPTION STATUS for golf facilities UNLESS there is a PROPOSAL that there will be a TRANSITION TO MORE PEST RESISTANT VARIETIES OF GRASS. 

 

 

The city has already curtailed spraying Roundup on sidewalks to kill weeds, and reduced use of synthetic pesticides at Riverside Municipal Golf Course by up to 60 per cent. 

 

 

Background Information

 

GLYPHOSATE HAS BEEN VINDICATED WORLD-WIDE !

 

There is NO reason to curtail ANY use of Roundup.  Glyphosate has been VINDICATED around the world, in the following jurisdictions         Australia      Canada      European Union      New Zealand      Nova Scotia      Switzerland      United States ( America ). 

 

The majority of European Union nations DO NOT WANT anti-glyphosate prohibition.  On November 27th, 2017, the European Union ( EU ) voted to EXTEND its RE-APPROVAL of glyphosate for a period of 5 YEARS.  Glyphosate was NOT approved for the typical 10 or 15-years because the EU review process was driven more by politics than science.  Nonetheless, the European Union has VINDICATED glyphosate.  With the EU RE-APPROVAL, the International Agency for Research on Cancer ( IARC ) has been DISCREDITED, again, and forever.  The IARC’s hazard report has been disputed by EVERY science-based national regulatory agency in the world, including two in Europe    the European Food Safety Authority and the European Chemicals Agency.  The latest major study, published in November 2017 by National Cancer Institute researchers concluded that    glyphosate was NOT statistically significantly associated with cancer.  Nonetheless, the EU may still be able to prohibit glyphosate’s use after the 5-year re-approval period.  Anti-glyphosate terrжrism will NEVER end !  But, it is inescapable that glyphosate DOES NOT cause cancer !

Chip-Charles Osborne

 

 

Lunatжc Avery Yale Kamila, a founder of pesticide-hating Portland Protectors, said the potential costs should be compared with the long-term costs of exposure to synthetic pesticides linked to cancers and liver and kidney damage, among other consequences. 

 

 

Background Information

 

SCIENTIFIC PROOF INDICATES THAT THERE IS NO INCREASE IN CANCER !

 

There is NO health risk associated with the proper application of pest control products.  Scientific research shows that, as reported through EPA’s and Health Canada’s vast toxicology database, NO harm will occur when pest control products are applied properly in the urban landscape.  The risk assessment of pest control products indicates that they are practically-non-toxic.  Consequently, it is a fact that pest control products will cause NO harm, including chronic effects such as cancer.  There are NO pest control products that are known or probable carcinogens.  All pesticides have been evaluated for their carcinogenic potential.  Canadian Cancer Society’s own web-sites state repeatedly, over and over again, that scientific research DOES NOT provide a conclusive link between pest control products and cancer.  There is NOT ONE known cancer death from the proper use of pest control products used in the urban landscape.  And yet, there are thousands of known deaths per year from known cancer-causing substances such as unhealthy diet, physical inactivity, excess body weight, alcohol consumption, and over-exposure to the sun.  Pest control products are SCIENTIFICALLY-SAFE, and WILL NOT cause harm to people, animals, or the environment. 

 

 

According to lunatжc Kamila   

 

I support more staffing and equipment. 

 

What I do know is organic is a more manual thing, pulling weeds, spreading compost. 

 

 

Also included in possible implementation costs is an exorbitant $24,000 needed to pay for two seasonal employees for MANUAL WEED PICKING at the athletic fields. 

 

 

Background Information

 

MANUAL WEED PICKING MEANS BECOMING A COTTON-PICKER ! 

 

Not surprisingly, manual weed picking is totally ineffective.  There is no doubt that it will be impossible for home-owners or maintenance professionals to keep their properties weed-free, safe, and beautiful by using practices like weed-pulling, raised mowing height, and soil aeration.  Without conventional pest control products, playing surfaces become thin and yellow, and over-run with weeds and infested with insects, resulting in the dismal destruction of safe turf playing surfaces and turning them into garbage dumps.  Who wants to live in #@!!% pest-infested garbage dumps just because a small group of fanatжcs seek to impose needless pesticide bans ?!?!  Forget about manual weed picking and forget about being a cotton-picker ! 

 

 

Both lunatжcs Kamila and Chip-Charles Osborne want the city to realize organic pest management is also a change in philosophy and outlook on management. 

 

According to lunatжc Kamila   

 

This is a big shift in a paradigm, this is like looking at soil and what it needs. 

 

The COST of Portland’s PROHIBITION will be $700,000, in no small part, because of the advice of an incompetent consultant & anti-pesticide lunatжc, Chip-Charles Osborne. 

 

Osborne is owner of Osborne Organics in Marblehead, Massachusetts, and is a board member of Washington, D.C.-based Beyond Pesticides, an anti-pesticide & environmental-terrжrist organization. 

 

He has also been providing incompetent advice to South Portland as it implements pesticide regulations approved in September 2016. 

 

As in Portland, the South Portland PROHIBITION is being PHASED-IN, and will apply to private property owners starting in May 2018. 

 

In 2019, PROHIBITION will be extended to the South Portland Municipal Golf Course.

In South Portland, golf facilities DO NOT GET AN EXCEPTION STATUS. 

 

Osborne shared a draft of his thoughts on potential costs and organic pest management. 

 

According to lunatжc Osborne   

 

Because the field is chemical free does not necessarily indicate that it needs $100,000 irrigation system. 

 

Lunatжc Osborne said he did not know what the city would implement to manage its fields, and did not doubt the potential cost of turf replacement, based on what he has seen in other places. 

 

However, he found the premise flawed. 

 

According to lunatжc Osborne   

 

It is highly unlikely that athletic fields that do not get pesticides, but ( do ) get a sound, comprehensive, organic program, would need to be replaced frequently. 

 

There would have to be a serious lapse in management in order for a field to fall in disrepair that quickly.  *

 

*  The lunatжc Osborne is WRONG !  The pesticide-free program ALWAYS end in failure, and playing surface must be replaced with natural grass, or converted to artificial⁄synthetic grass.  How can Portland tolerate Osbornes #@!!% organic incompetency ?!?!

Background Information

 

IN PORTLAND, MAINE, NO ONE WANTS THIS #@!!% PESTICIDE BAN NONSENSE !

 

 

Prohibition INFLICTS catastrophic carnage since it forces home-owners & professionals to adopt BOGUS maintenance products & practices. 

 

Organic pesticide-free lawn care DOES NOT WORK ! 

 

The Portland ordinance WILL NOT WORK ! 

 

Everybody is being lulled into la-la land. 

 

There are NO alternative products & practices that work. 

 

Focusing on soil health WILL NOT control pests. 

 

Natural/organic-based products WILL NOT control pests. 

 

Organic programs WILL NOT control pests, and WILL INFLICT stunningly expensive maintenance costs. 

 

Despite rigged testimonials and mock-photos, organic pesticide-free maintenance WILL NOT control pests ! 

 

Organic pesticide-free maintenance is a FAILURE ! 

 

It is a KNOWN FAILURE even in Canadian jurisdictions. 

 

After up to 10 years of experiencing prohibition in Canada, everything has NOT worked out great in Canada since all of its urban landscape now look like pest-infested & dangerous garbage dumps. 

 

This is because Canadian alternative maintenance products & practices DID NOT WORK and became DISMAL FAILURES. 

 

Moreover, because of prohibition in provinces like Ontario, the professional lawn care industry lost over 500,000,000 dollars, with over to 12,500 unemployed. 

 

NO ONE WANTS THIS #@!!% BAN NONSENSE !

SUMMARY    ASHLAND

 

 

Anti-pesticide lunatжc-activists have infested the city of Ashland, Oregon, but have failed.  In 2010, Ashland’s parks & recreation commission chose to dedicate $80,000 to hire a  coordinator toward a goal of reducing pesticides.  Who can afford this #@!!% ban nonsense ?!?!  By 2012, Ashland parks department staff reported that organic green alternative pesticides proved largely ineffective for controlling weeds, & parks commissioners unanimously rescinded the city’s prohibition, & re-authorized pest control products on baseball & softball infields.  Parks staff gave up on using organic pesticides.  Ashland parks commissioners unanimously rescinded prohibition, & re-authorized conventional pest control products on baseball & softball infields.  Weeds took over the dirt areas of the infields in 2011, creating an uneven & unsafe surface, presenting a liability issue for the parks department.  Commissioners also unanimously rescinded early sign-posting.  Parks staff tried to burn weeds along concrete & asphalt with propane torches, but that was also not effective.  How can a municipality tolerate this #@!!% organic incompetency ?!?!

SUMMARY    BOULDER

 

 

Anti-pesticide lunatжc-activists have infested the city of Boulder, Colorado.  They are all members of an anti-pesticide & environmental-terrжrist organization called Beyond Pesticides.  Beyond Pesticides lunatжcs have wormed their way into Boulder’s parks department where they could impose their life-style choices and beliefs on the rest of the city at an extreme cost to tax-payers, using unsubstantiated safety claims and concocted stories of organic success, with alleged savings & results that do not exist. 

 

Beginning in 2010, city of Boulder made its first attempt at a so-called pesticide-free community.  Boulder went from a $15,000 per year on a conventional pest control program to a staggering $300,000 + per year program with the advice of an incompetent consultant & anti-pesticide fanatжc, Chip-Charles Osborne.  The pesticide-free program ended in failure.  How can a municipality tolerate Osbornes #@!!% organic incompetency ?!?!  In the next year, Boulder re-introduced Roundup into its weed control program, and attempted to use the green alternative herbicide Fiesta on city grounds, to no avail. 

 

In 2011, Boulder spent $100,000 per year in mechanical weed control on street medians    using goats.  These goats were originally used for land reclamation.  These goats drop urine and poo which are incorporated into the fields with their hooves.  There is no credibility here, not even any proof, that goats are effective.  If goats somehow could be effective, everyone else would be using them for weed control.  Who can afford this #@!!% ban nonsense ?!?!

Anti-Pesticide Carnage Inflicted By Stunningly

Exorbitant Costs Of Maintenance For Municipalities

 

DURANGO, City Of

Colorado USA

 

 

Prohibition Costs $300,000 + For Weed Control

With Green Alternatives, In Comparison

To $15,000 With Conventional Products

 

Prohibition Costs For Maintaining Pesticide-Free

Parks Increased From $34,550 To $237,450 Per Year

 

Prohibition Costs For Pesticide-Free Natural

Lands Increased From $8,000 To $76,700 Per Year

 

Prohibition Also Requires $100,000 In

Donations For Pesticide-Free Organic Parks

 

Incompetent Consultant & Pesticide-

Hating Fanatжc Chip-Charles Osborne Paid

$36,000 For Ridiculous Organic Programs

 

 

 

SUMMARY    DURANGO

 

 

In Durango, anti-pesticide prohibition will be leading to stunningly exorbitant maintenance costs as well as garbage dump green spaces.  The costs for maintaining Durango’s parks will increase from $34,550 to $237,450 annually.  The costs for maintaining Durango’s natural lands increased from $8,000 to $76,700 annually.  Who can afford this #@!!% ban nonsense ?!?!  Municipal employees were forced to resort to the back-breaking & agonizing job of weed-pulling by hand, just like cotton-pickers.  City council also appropriated $36,000 for an incompetent consultant & anti-pesticide fanatжc, Chip-Charles Osborne, to concoct an organic strategy for somehow maintaining turf without conventional products.  Ridiculously, Osborne prescribed spraying useless concoctions of soy & kelp powder, a liquid form of molasses, & humic acid, at nine city parks as part of a pilot organic management program that began in spring 2013, provided the city can find $100,000 in donations.  How can a municipality tolerate Osborne’s #@!!% organic incompetency ?!?!

Exorbitant Costs Of Maintenance For Municipalities

 

LAWRENCE, City of

Kansas USA

 

 

Prohibition Costs Hundreds Of

Thousands Of Dollars More Per Year

To Maintain Pesticide-Free Parks

 

 

 

SUMMARY    LAWRENCE

 

 

Before its 2009 prohibition against pest control products, Lawrence spent less than $10,000 per year for conventional pest control products.  The stunningly exorbitant costs of prohibition has been $213,000 for equipment, $116,000 annually for staff, & $95,000 annually for materials.  Municipal employees have been forced to resort to the back-breaking & agonizing job of weed-pulling by hand, just like cotton-pickers.  Who can afford this #@!!% ban nonsense ?!?!

In 2010, an incompetent consultant & anti-pesticide fanatжc, Chip-Charles Osborne, had been unable to provide adequate playing surfaces with his organic pesticide-free programs.  How can a municipality tolerate Osborne’s #@!!% organic incompetency ?!?!  With no way to save natural grass sports field, township council planned to install artificial/synthetic grass, but the plan was defeated in a referendum.  The field finally re-opened in December 2010 with natural grass which was renovated with sod at a stunning cost of $1,300,000.  Later, the township discovered that the sod had been incorrectly installed.  Who can afford this #@!!% ban nonsense ?!?!

POTOMAC

Maryland USA

Glenstone Museum

 

 

Unlimited Budget Is The Key To

Organic Pesticide-Free Maintenance

 

Incompetent Consultants &

Pesticide-Hating Fanatжcs Chip-

Charles Osborne & Paul Tukey

 

 

 

SUMMARY    POTOMAC

 

 

Unlimited budget is the key to organic pesticide-free maintenance of green spaces.  Forget sustainability    it is not in the equation any more.  Boulder, Colorado, has documented the failed attempt at organic without irrigation in 2001.  Pesticide-hating lunatжc Rella Abernathy, & her herds of weed-eating goats, were behind the many failures costing tax-payers more than $250,000 on Chip-Charles Osborne’s bogus experiments in several municipalities.  An incompetent consultant & anti-pesticide fanatжc, Osborne has misinformed municipal officials they would save money on watering with his organic pesticide-free maintenance.  This is far from the truth.  The goats may be next at Glenstone Museum, where Osborne & co-conspirator Paul Tukey operate.  Osborne, Tukey, & Abernathy    lunatжcs all operating under the umbrella of Beyond Pesticides, an anti-pesticide & environmental-terrжrist organization with a mission for financially enrich its directors & its co-conspirator allies.  Then, once organic pesticide-free maintenance will inevitably fail at Glenstone Museum, it will be back to applying federally-safe pesticides.  1 to 2 low-cost applications a year & Glenstone Museum will be weed-free once again.  No one will know    they can apply the weed control products at night, or when the museum is closed.  Then, Osborne & Tukey will take pictures of the perfectly manicured lawn of Glenstone Museum, & falsely claim that organic pesticide-free maintenance is somehow a success.  How can Glenstone Museum tolerate Osborne’s & Tukey’s #@!!% organic incompetency ?!?!  Unlimited budget is the key to organic, for high-cost green alternative pesticides that do not work, high-cost organic fertilizers, & high-cost herds of goats.  An unlimited budget is easily available from an affluent museum with hapless administrators.  Otherwise, no one can afford this #@!!% ban nonsense ?!?!

Anti-Pesticide Carnage Inflicted By Stunningly

Exorbitant Costs Of Maintenance For Municipalities

 

SCARBOROUGH, Town of

Maine USA

 

 

Prohibition Costs Hundreds Of

Thousands Of Dollars Per Year

 

Prohibition Costs Additional $12,000 For

The Spring Application Of Dylox Insecticide

On Supposed Pesticide-Free Sports Fields

 

Incompetent Consultant & Pesticide-

Hating Fanatжc Chip-Charles Osborne Paid

$36,000 For Failed Organic Programs

 

 

 

SUMMARY    SCARBOROUGH

 

 

Since the imposition of anti-pesticide prohibition, Scarborough green spaces have become pest-infested and dangerous garbage dumps.  Ultimately, organic maintenance was abandoned for a conventional insecticide called Dylox in 2013.  This was one example where organic pesticide-free maintenance practices do not work !  Government officials had said $91,000 had been budgeted for athletic field maintenance, including $75,000 for turf management.  As of early 2012, $91,400 had been spent.  Government officials expected spending an additional $12,000 for the spring application of Dylox insecticide for the control of white grubs, rendering its green spaces no longer pesticide-free.  A number of unexpected costs, such as $8,800 for additional white grub treatments with Dylox at Wiley Recreation Facility and Scarborough Middle School fields, also drove up the costs.  Chip-Charles Osborne was the incompetent consultant & anti-pesticide lunatжc hired by Scarborough to implement organic pesticide-free maintenance that does not work.  Osborne’s usual fee for concocting his usual worthless organic strategy is $36,000.  Additionally, in Scarborough, the stunningly exorbitant costs continue to rise and rise and rise.  In 2012, the first full fiscal year with the organics approach, the town spent $121,578 for turf management.  In fiscal year 2013, the figure rose to $137,920 and by 2015 was $159,207.  Who can afford this #@!!% ban nonsense ?!?!

Anti-Pesticide Carnage Inflicted By Stunningly

Exorbitant Costs Of Maintenance For Municipalities

 

WALLINGFORD, City of

Connecticut USA

 

 

After Prohibition Was Imposed,

Exorbitant Amounts Of Money

Were Needlessly Spent

 

Schools Were Forced To Buy Over

40,000 Dollars’ Worth Of Equipment,

& Were Forced To Hire More

Personnel To Pull Weeds

 

 

 

SUMMARY    WALLINGFORD

 

 

Wallingford’s prohibition against pest control products has led to catastrophic financial carnage !  When residents of Wallingford see an baseball in-field over-grown with weeds, they get really upset about the pesticide ban failure.  Prohibition has inflicted a host of problems that were not really thought out properly.  Because of Wallingford’s 2012 reckless and arbitrary prohibition against pest control products used in the urban landscape, municipal employees cannot use safe and effective herbicides, instead, they pull the weeds by hand and use weed trimmers.  Within 18 months, Wallingford had a substantial change in the turf thickness on the athletic fields, and weeds were out of control around the buildings and landscape beds, converting green spaces into weed-infested garbage dumps.  After prohibition was imposed, Wallingford’s Madison schools were forced to NEEDLESSLY SPEND EXORBITANT AMOUNTS OF MONEY.  The schools were forced to buy over 40,000 DOLLARS’ worth of equipment, & were forced to hire more personnel to pull weeds.  The exorbitant cost of a so-called organic pesticide-free program    with no conventional pest control products    was significantly more expensive than an integrated pest management ( IPM ) program that allows pesticide use as a last resort.  According to David Paul, director of facilities for the city school system organic green alternative pesticides « just don’t work, and whatever does remotely work is so expensive it’s not conducive to our budgets ».  In Wallingford, green alternative pesticides are a dismal failure.  Moreover, Wallingford municipal employees are forced to resort to manual labour, and are required to hand-pull weeds, just like cotton-picking niggжrs.  Those who support overturning the prohibition believe not using pest control products can still create a harmful environment for students.  Children are at risk with anti-pesticide prohibition.  Sports fields are over-grown with clovers and dandelions.  Clover also attracts sting and potentially deadly bees.  If children play on a weed-infested pesticide-free sports field, what happens if they get stung by bees ?!?!  If children play on a weed-infested pesticide-free sports field, what happens if they have a deadly allergy to bees ?!?!

WE SPEAK THE WHOLE TRUTH ABOUT EXORBITANT COSTS 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 brain-child of Mr William H Gathercole and his colleagues in 1991.  Mr Gathercole is now retired, although his name continues to appear as founder.  We dare to defy the pesticide-hating fanatжcs by exploring the whole truth from an independent perspective on The Pesticide Truths Web-Site      http://pesticidetruths.com/   If you wish to receive free reports on issues that concern you, please contact us at      force.of.de.nature@gmail.com   WILLIAM H GATHERCOLE AND NORAH G
