Residents Become Cotton-Pickers Because Of Manual Weed Picking

If someone arbitrarily dislikes conventional pest control products, that is THEIR choice.

We have NO objection to THEIR choice of life-style, which, in this case, is a clear preference for the back-breaking practice of Manual Weed Picking.

But, no one, except for THEM, wants this #@!!% nonsense of Manual Weed Picking, even though this practice DOES NOT WORK !

Moreover, we DO object to the imposition of THEIR choice on the majority of the community that DOES NOT want to perform lawn maintenance like COTTON-PICKERS.

If a small minority of highly-motivated fanatics want to spend 40 to 50 hours plus per week pulling weeds from their properties, that’s their prerogative.

IMPOSING that life-style on everyone else for NO good reason IS UNFAIR.

Besides, Manual Weed Picking is TOTALLY INEFFECTIVE.

It would be better to do NOTHING rather than rely upon Manual Weed Picking.

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 !

Manual Weed Picking Kills People

On June 28th, 2011, an Ontario resident did not realize that hand-weeding a toxic noxious weed on his property would contribute to his death.

This resident was ultimately doomed since the safest and most effective method of controlling toxic noxious weeds was arbitrarily and needlessly prohibited by government officials.

Contact with this toxic noxious weed resulted in severe burns to his hands and arms, eventually forcing him to be hospitalized ― ultimately, he died.

Unfortunately, government officials had imposed a reckless anti-pesticide prohibition.

The death was the fault of Manual Weed Picking and prohibition !

Municipal Employees Are Treated Like Cotton-Pickers

Without the use of conventional pest control products, anti-pesticide jurisdictions were/are FORCED TO RESORT to the BACK-BREAKING and AGONIZING job of Manual Weed Picking !

Municipal employees have been DEVALORIZED into a group of WEED-PICKERS.

This is because green alternative pesticides & practices, like Manual Weed Picking, are BOGUS and DO NOT WORK !

Green alternatives represent the FAILURE OF ORGANIC PESTICIDE-FREE MAINTENANCE.

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 and AGONIZING JOB of Manual Weed Picking using scrapers and hoes !

Manual Weed Picking represents the FAILURE OF ORGANIC PESTICIDE-FREE MAINTENANCE.

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, and will NOT cause harm to people, animals, and the environment.

In ALL anti-pesticide jurisdictions where Manual Weed Picking is used, government officials are RAPIDLY TRYING TO REVERT  BACK to conventional pest control products.

―――――――――――――――――――――

Resident Weed-Picking Volunteers Are Treated Like Cotton-Pickers

Municipalities CANNOT AFFORD THE HIGH COST of manual labour required for Manual Weed Picking.

Because of the FAILURE OF ORGANIC PESTICIDE-FREE MAINTENANCE, government officials have been forced to enlist the help of Resident Weed Picking Volunteers, most of whom are elderly and unemployed.

Resident Volunteers have had to resort to the BACK-BREAKING and AGONIZING job of Manual Weed Picking !

Moreover, Resident Volunteers rapidly become interested to volunteer their time in a LOSING BATTLE AGAINST WEEDS.

In ALL anti-pesticide jurisdictions where Resident Weed Picking Volunteers are used, government officials want to RAPIDLY REVERT BACK to conventional pest control products.

―――――――――――――――――――――

Green Alternative Pesticides Are Bogus

PESTICIDE BANS lead to the CATASTROPHIC PROBLEMS of weed invasions and insect infestations.

Weeds and insects DAMAGE TURF shortly after ANY municipality that has PROHIBITED the use of conventional pest control products.

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

Government Officials, the Green Space Industry, and the public were DUPED by anti-pesticide lunatжcs.

These lunatжcs have FALSELY ALLEGED that so-called safe and effective Green Alternative Pesticides were/are already available to replace conventional pest control products.  [ Wrong ! ]

There are NO viable, NO efficacious, NO economical, and 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, and pose HIGHER ENVIRONMENTAL RISKS.

A well-maintained conventional lawn and landscape can ONLY BE ACHIEVED with conventional pest control products.

Fortunately, conventional pest control products, like 2,4-D, are SAFE, EFFECTIVE, ECONOMICAL, and LOW-RISK.

―――――――――――――――――――――

The Effect On 2,4-D On Health Is A Myth

Pest control products, like 2,4-D, used in the urban landscape are government-approved, federally-legal, scientifically-safe, and practically-non-toxic … these products DID NOT need to be prohibited.

Green Alternative Pesticides are NOT necessary !

There are NO pest control products that are known or probable carcinogens.

It is a MYTH to believe that pest control products somehow cause cancer.

There are THOUSANDS OF DEATHS per year from KNOWN CANCER-CAUSING SUBSTANCES such as cigarette smoke and alcohol.

There is NOT ONE KNOWN CANCER DEATH from the proper use of pest control products used in the Urban Landscape.

Even Canadian Cancer Society’s own web-sites state, repeatedly, that scientific research DOES NOT provide a conclusive link between pest control products and cancer.

EPA, Health Canada, and other science-based national regulatory agencies have clearly demonstrated that 2,4-D is LESS TOXIC THAN Aspirin, baking soda, caffeine, cannabis, nicotine, table salt, and Tylenol.

2,4-D is NO MORE TOXIC THAN ethanol ( an edible beverage constituent in beer, wine, and other intoxicating beverages ), mouthwash ( Listerine ), and Vitamin C.

2,4-D is scientifically-safe, practically non-toxic, will cause NO harm, will NOT cause cancer, and will NOT cause irreversible damage if consumed orally.

The probable lethal dose for a person ingesting the concentrated form of 2,4-D is ONE LITRE, the volume of an entire milk carton.

By comparison, drinking SIX LITRES of water, a fluid that is seemingly harmless, can lead to water poisoning or dilutional hyponatremia, which is a potentially fatal disturbance in brain functions.

Manual Weed Picking

Everett, Washington, USA

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

The Lowell Park Pesticide-Free Pilot-Project ENDED in May 2012, and the City of Everett, Washington, RESUMED SPRAYING WEEDS with conventional pest control products.

The application of pest control products was resumed because NOT ENOUGH Resident Weed Picking Volunteers could KEEP THE PARK UP TO CITY STANDARDS.

It was TOO MUCH WORK for Resident Volunteers to maintain the whole park.

Without the use of conventional pest control products, City of Everett was FORCED TO RESORT to the BACK-BREAKING and AGONIZING job of Manual Weed Picking !

Resident Weed Picking Volunteers, most of whom are elderly and unemployed, were forced to become A GROUP OF MERE WEED-PICKERS.

Resident Volunteers were needed because Green Alternative Pesticides were BOGUS and DID NOT WORK !

Organic and Pesticide-Free Maintenance has been a DISMAL FAILURE.

Manual Weed Picking

Highland Park, Illinois, USA

Part 1

By early 2012, Park District of Highland Park CONCLUDED that Organic and Pesticide-Free Maintenance of its sports fields was a DISMAL FAILURE.

The Manual Weed Picking program was deemed TOTALLY INEFFECTIVE.

In order to rid the sports fields of weeds by using Manual Weed Picking, Highland Park observed that you would NEED AN ARMY and concluded that « we don’t think that’s a solution ».

The city’s professional labour force, along with volunteers, were DEVALORIZED into a group of mere COTTON-PICKERS.

Highland Park needed to RESCUE THE WEED-RIDDEN SPORTS FIELDS from Organic and Pesticide-Free Maintenance that has been a DISMAL FAILURE.

Three major sports fields were OVER-RUN with MORE THAN 60 PER CENT WEED INVASION.

The non-expert anti-pesticide activists, like the LUNATЖC-CLOWNS from Beyond Pesticides, that recommended Organic and Pesticide-Free Maintenance, KNEW NOTHING and were UTTERLY INCOMPETENT.

Pest control products used in the urban landscape are government-approved, federally-legal, scientifically-safe, and practically-non-toxic … these products DID NOT need to be prohibited.

Manual Weed Picking

Highland Park, Illinois, USA

Part 2

Non-expert Chip Osborne ( lunatжc director of Beyond Pesticides, an anti-pesticide & environmental-terrжrist organization ) has shilled his services for FAILED and INEFFECTIVE Organic and Pesticide-Free Maintenance ( i.e. organic ) to several municipalities, including the Park District of Highland Park in Illinois.

See video below.

At 3:30 — Chip has said parks can be weed free in 14 months ?!?!

At 8:00 — 18 To 24 months ?!?!

Chip has said « We can’t eradicate all the weeds, you need to manually control ( i.e. Manual Weed Picking ) ».

« It will only take 18 to 24 months ».

How much does it cost to have Chip as a consultant ?!?!

Chip has responded « we can talk about that in private », preferring to avoid such discussion on public video.

Chip was/is paid 36,000 dollars, or more, per year, merely as a consultant for giving advice on FAILED and INEFFECTIVE Organic and Pesticide-Free Maintenance.

Who can afford this #@!!% Chip nonsense ?!?!

Don’t be fooled by Chip Osborne, even in his video presentation, he dodged all the questions relating to STUNNING COSTS of his services and where he sourced his information relating his IMAGINED DANGERS of pesticides and inert ingredients.

Sadly, Chip is NOT an expert, but he IS a salesman who shills FAILED and INEFFECTIVE services.

Who can afford this #@!!% Chip nonsense ?!?!

Osborne has said that organic fertilizer products are more cost-effective than many conventional products because less is needed than conventional fertilizers.  [ ?!?! ]

He also alleges that kelp and seaweed products, although not considered to be fertilizers or soil amendments, are good additions to a lawn care program.  [ ?!?! ] 

In fact, these products are INEFFECTIVE.

Who can afford this #@!!% Chip nonsense ?!?!

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

Green alternative are BOGUS and DISMAL FAILURES  ―  they are INEFFECTIVE and DO NOT WORK.

By definition, alternatives are INFERIOR, which is why they did not win the market-place originally.

And, they are STUNNINGLY EXPENSIVE.

Who can afford this #@!!% Chip nonsense ?!?!

Why does anyone listen to Chip nonsense ?!?!

Organic and Pesticide-Free Maintenance practices ( i.e. organic ) proposed by Chip are failed and ineffective, as well as STUNNINGLY EXPENSIVE due to factors such as INFERIOR green alternative products, IMMENSE labour for Manual Weed Picking, and inevitable re-construction.

Who can afford this #@!!% Chip nonsense ?!?!

Manual Weed Picking

Lawrence, Kansas, USA

In cities like Lawrence, Kansas, government officials are now REVERTING BACK to conventional pest control since residents are no longer interested to volunteer their time in a LOSING BATTLE AGAINST WEEDS.

Without the use of conventional pest control products, Lawrence had to resort to the BACK-BREAKING and AGONIZING job of Manual Weed Picking !

Moreover, the city’s professional labour force was DEVALORIZED into a group of mere COTTON-PICKERS.

Government officials showed that Lawrence had spent less than 10,000 dollars per year for conventional pest control products.

Non-expert anti-pesticide activists lobbied Lawrence to convert all of the city’s 52 parks to pesticide-free maintenance by 2009.

However, a cost analysis by the Parks and Recreation staff estimated that the city would have to spend 213,000 dollars for equipment; 116,000 dollars annually for staff; and 95,000 dollars annually for materials to achieve that goal.

Organic and Pesticide-Free Maintenance has been STUNNINGLY EXPENSIVE, and has been a DISMAL FAILURE.

Manual Weed Picking

Lincoln City, Oregon, USA

Lincoln City’s move to prohibit against conventional herbicides in its parks resulted in a SURGE OF WEED GROWTH.

Three years later, Lincoln City was FORCED TO SPEND 260 staff hours with people performing Manual Weed Picking ON THEIR HANDS AND KNEES WEEDING  …  and they still COULD NOT KEEP UP WITH THE WEEDS.

Back when the department was applying conventional pest control products, parks workers would SPEND a mere 60 hours.

Unfortunately, Lincoln City has NEGLECTED TASKS ranging from manicuring trees, pressure-washing, and painting trash cans.

Green Alternatives Pesticides, like vinegar acid, are MORE TOXIC and MORE DANGEROUS  …  they can BURN the eyes and skin of workers, so they had to wear protective masks and suits.

Three years after going pesticide-free, conventional pest control products NEEDED TO BE USED AGAIN IN WEED-INFESTED PARKS.

Organic and Pesticide-Free Maintenance has been a DISMAL FAILURE.

Manual Weed Picking

Portland, Oregon, USA

The City of Portland CAPITULATED under pressure from  Northwest Coalition For Alternatives To Pesticides ( NCAP ), an anti-pesticide & environmental-terrжrist organization.

The city self-imposed a prohibition against pest control products.

The ONLY alternatives were the STUNNINGLY EXORBITANT COSTS in paid labour and volunteers for Manual Weed Picking.

They have been forced to work as WEED-PICKERS, a BACK-BREAKING and AGONIZING job.

Hazardous FLAME-THROWERS were also employed.

Portland’s Organic and Pesticide-Free Maintenance meant DEVALORIZING labour and volunteers into a group of COTTON-PICKERS.

Ultimately, the city was only able to afford PESTICIDE-FREE PARKS through the use of Resident Volunteers who were UNRELIABLE, and their numbers SEVERELY DECLINED over a three year period.

When using conventional pest control products, Portland SPENT a mere 371 dollars per year to keep the weeds out.

PESTICIDE-FREE PARKS, on the other hand, came with the EXORBITANT COST of 3,621 dollars in annual maintenance costs, and 9,455 dollars in start-up costs for each new park.

STUNNING COSTS were also required to pay parks department employees to HAUL weeds collected by volunteers, and to INSPECT the parks to make sure weeds were under control.

Portland’s Organic and Pesticide-Free Maintenance has been a DISMAL FAILURE.

Manual Weed Picking

Salmon Arm, British Columbia

Salmon Arm is a city in the Southern Interior of the province of British Columbia that has a population of over 17,000.

For years, anti-pesticide lunatжc-activists like Warren Bell coerced, intimidated, and terrжrized the elected officials of Salmon Arm.

Consequently, on February 23rd, 2009, Salmon Arm capitulated to Bell and his lunatжc-operatives when elected officials legislated a needless, senseless, and malicious prohibition by-law against conventional pest control products used in the urban landscape.

On March 1st, 2010, Salmon Arm’s prohibition legislation was implemented, and Organic and Pesticide-Free Maintenance became the law.

Owners of local professional lawn care companies cried unfair.

On March 2nd, 2011, during the meeting with city staff, these owners received an updated copy of the prohibition, which now included an exception status for « certified applicators ».

Moreover, prohibition exceptions were tacked on to the city’s prohibition by-law, ready for when city staff decide to spray pesticides on the city’s HARD-LANDSCAPE infra-structure, such as sidewalks and highway islands.

The EXCEPTION states ― « This by-law shall not apply in respect of the application of pesticides to prevent the deterioration of HARD-LANDSCAPES after alternatives have been utilized without success ».

During the city’s budget deliberations in November 2016, city staff proposed a $10,000 increase in the budget to do a one-time conventional herbicide application.

City staff told council THE TIME HAS COME FOR AN APPLICATION OF PESTICIDES.

City staff said TWO STUDENTS WERE PULLING WEEDS ― BUT THE WEEDS PREVAILED AND ARE WRECKING THE HARD-SURFACES.

« It is TOO LABOUR-INTENSIVE. It’s getting to the point now that weeds and weed seeds are so prevalent WE CAN’T KEEP UP WITH IT, » city staff said.

Salmon Arm’s Organic and Pesticide-Free Maintenance has been a DISMAL FAILURE.

Manual Weed Picking

Vernon, British Columbia

Coldstream is a District Municipality in British Columbia, located in the Okanagan Valley, with a population under 10,000, is considered part of Greater Vernon.

The PROBLEM OF WEEDS surfaced after Coldstream PROHIBITED the use of conventional pest control products used on city-owned green spaces.

Without the use of these products, municipal employees had to resort to the BACK-BREAKING and AGONIZING job of Manual Weed Picking using hoes !

The professional labour force was DEVALORIZED into a group of mere COTTON-PICKING NIGGЖRS.

While WEED-PICKING was used initially to control weeds, it appears NO professional municipal employee wanted to continue with this form of MANUAL COTTON-PICKING LABOUR.

Not surprisingly, Coldstream parks became OVER-RUN BY WEEDS, and needed to be TOTALLY RENOVATED.

Moreover, a BASEBALL DIAMOND had to be COMPLETELY RENOVATED with RE-SURFACING and NEW SHALE.

Regional District of North Okanagan was forced to SPEND 3,000 dollars to bring the BASEBALL DIAMOND up to standard since the weed invasion left it in an UNUSABLE CONDITION FOR PLAYING SAFELY.

Manual Weed Picking

Vineyard Golf Club, The

The maintenance practices used at the Vineyard Golf Club, in Martha’s Vineyard, USA, are seen as a possible template for so-called organic pesticide-free golf course maintenance.  This is RIDICULOUS & WRONG !

Vineyard is somehow seen as some kind of environmental pioneer, with many in the golf industry needlessly attempting to learn its ( failed ) maintenance practices.  This is STUPID & FALSE !

In fact, Vineyard serves as a template for inflicting catastrophic employee abuse by subjecting its labour force into a group of mere cotton-pickers who are forced to remove billions & billions of weed and insect pests MANUALLY !  At Vineyard, there is no longer a need to employ golf course technicians with professional training.  All they need to know how to do is bend over and pull or scoop.  Their work is no better than being cotton-pickers.  Vineyard’s self-imposed prohibition against pest control products is a DISMAL FAILURE !

Vineyard utilizes other outmoded and ancient pest control practices, such as killing weeds with boiling water and removing moss with kitchen dish detergent.  When compared to the use of safe & effective conventional herbicides, NONE of these practices are effective for the control of damaging pests.  Unfortunately, controlling destructive insect pests like white grubs is impossible.

At Vineyard, pest control practices have REGRESSED by 100 years.  Pesticide-free golf course maintenance is really nothing new.  And does not work, unless stunningly huge amounts of funds are wasted on cotton-picking labour.  Vineyard is a huge operational FAILURE !
