The Failures Of Prohibition Against
The Use Of Conventional Pest Control
Products Used In The Urban Landscape

 

A major study of British Columbia’s anti-pesticide by-laws has concluded that municipal prohibitions are DISMAL FAILURES. This is because municipal officials are now circumventing their own prohibitions by taking advantage of EXCEPTION STATUSES that they have conveniently inserted in their by-laws. Municipal prohibitions have provided inconsistent and unfair EXCEPTION STATUSES for invasive weeds & destructive insects ― for municipal properties and even residential homes ― but NOT for lawn care businesses. Consequently, municipal prohibitions have annihilated legitimate & tax-paying businesses that operate in the professional lawn care industry. These businesses CANNOT afford the hardship & the cost of this #@!!% prohibition nonsense ! Once any prohibition is adopted, local businesses are expected to disappear into oblivion within 2 or 3 years, and vast numbers of workers are expected to become unemployed. Additionally, for those residents with the same pest problems on their home properties, they may be shжt-outta-luck relying on ANY exception. Without conventional pest control products, home properties have become pest-infested & dangerous garbage dumps because it is impossible to control invasive weeds & destructive insects by using so-called green alternative pesticides & practices. Municipal prohibitions have led to catastrophic pest carnage for tens of thousands of destroyed & ravaged properties every single year. British Columbia’s municipal EXCEPTION STATUSES represent the best examples of the failures, the ridiculousness, and the destructiveness of their anti-pesticide prohibitions. Municipal prohibitions have been disgustingly arbitrary in their flagrant discrimination against professional lawn care businesses & home properties ! In order to be consistent & fair, there should be NO #@!!% EXCEPTION STATUSES whatsoever ! For more information, please explore the following link …
