FAILURE OF MEDIEVAL & INEFFECTIVE ORGANIC PESTICIDE-FREE MAINTENANCE

Summary

The Failures Of Organic
Pesticide-Free Maintenance

There are no successful practices for organic pesticide-free maintenance, only failures that are promoted by extremists with unverifiable success stories.

Overall, organic pesticide-free maintenance that relies on green alternative pesticides will not be able to provide well-maintained & economical turfgrass surfaces in the urban landscape.

This is because green alternatives are inferior & ineffective, & will never adequately control infestations of recurring invasive weeds & destructive insects & harmful diseases.

They will never reduce, or even eliminate, the need for no-risk conventional pest control products.

In all cases, they will never, ever, work.

Green spaces have never looked so #@!!% ugly when using organic pesticide-free maintenance  ―  the urban environment becomes a garbage dump.

It will be impossible for home-owners, & even professionals, to protect their properties from damaging pests by relying on inferior & ineffective green alternative pesticides.

Unfortunately, these pesticides may represent a major threat of with questionably higher toxicity & with higher environmental risks.

In some cases, green alternatives may be considered as unsafe as using Agent Orange, DDT, & other controversial products.

By contrast, no-risk conventional products can be used safely & will cause no harm to human health & the environment.

Organic pesticide-free maintenance may be a menace to the modern green space industry.

Organic maintenance is often recommended merely to advance the conspiracy to prohibit no-risk conventional pest control products.

Polls prove that a majority of home-owners feel that their governments are wrong when implementing prohibition  ―  home-owners do not want to be forced into relying on inferior & ineffective green alternatives.

Government officials promote organic maintenance only because it somehow aligns with their political precepts & doctrines.

Not surprisingly, whenever prohibitions are imposed, inferior & ineffective green alternative products are incorporated into organic maintenance  ―  not because they work  ―  but because of rules & legislation that overwhelmingly & unfairly favours these products.

The menace of organic maintenance must be eradicated from the modern green space industry, forever.

This menace is particularly alarming for the golf industry.

It is impossible for golf superintendents to maintain high-quality playing conditions & aesthetics by relying upon organic, pesticide-free, & IPM, & other medieval & ineffective forms of maintenance.

Without conventional pest control products, golf courses will become pest-infested & unplayable garbage dumps that look dead  …  unless staggering & unlimited amounts of money are provided by either government hand-outs or ultra-wealthy club-members.

The Canadian golf industry’s official position on organic pesticide-free maintenance has been  ―    golf courses have not adopted a policy of no-pesticides    Canadian conditions are not conducive for pesticide-free maintenance    acceptable playing conditions can only be achieved through the use of pest control products    these products are a necessity due to the requirement for professional turfgrasses grown in difficult climate conditions.

Consequently, there are no organic pesticide-free golf courses in Canada.

Elsewhere, organic golf courses are forced to adopt medieval & ineffective maintenance which cannot possibly control pests that will damage playing conditions & aesthetics.

Virtually all organic golf courses only pretend being pesticide-free.

In Canada, there have been four, yes only four, attempts by golf courses that have pretended being pesticide-free;  they have been put up for sale & have gone into receivership  ―  one no longer pretends to be organic.

Trade associations must establish policies for expelling businesses that use organic pesticide-free maintenance.

All businesses that rely exclusively on organic pesticide-free maintenance have been dismal failures, & are disintegrating under the weight of their own treachery  —  they frequently rely upon lying, cheating, & fraud to ensure their profits.

Trade associations must also publicly discredit bogus terms like organic-maintenance & pesticide-free-maintenance.

Trade associations must be expected to strongly urge their constituent-industries to recognize that safe, economical, & well-maintained green spaces can only be achieved with no-risk & effective conventional pest control products & fertilizers, & not with inferior & ineffective green alternatives.

National regulatory agencies, world-wide, have found that conventional products do not present risks of concern to human health or the environment when correctly used according to label directions.

Reasons For Organic Pesticide-Free Failures

Reasons for the failures of medieval & ineffective organic pesticide-free maintenance of turfgrasses in the urban landscape, as well failures of harmful-prohibition against no-risk conventional pest control products   ―  see below.

Business Damages To Lawn Care Industry

Failures Of Medieval & Ineffective Organic Pesticide-Free Maintenance   

All prohibitions are failures because they will lead to horrendous & catastrophic carnage, in the form of immense losses of revenues, business failures, bankruptcy, & unemployment in the professional lawn care industry.  This is because alternative maintenance products & practices will have been dismal & ridiculous failures.  Moreover, prohibitions have been disgustingly arbitrary in their flagrant discrimination against professional lawn care businesses that will have been provided with no exception status whatsoever, & that will face assured destruction.  Organic pesticide-free maintenance has been a threat to businesses & has been a dismal failure.

   Portland, Maine

Children At Risk

Failures Of Medieval & Ineffective Organic Pesticide-Free Maintenance   

Because of prohibition, the public can only expect playing surfaces that will rapidly deteriorate & become unplayable, thus compromising the safety of children.  These surfaces will become thin & yellow, & over-run with weeds.  Children will not be able play because of the proliferation of weeds.  The public must expect hazardous slipping & tripping conditions in sports turf, with children becoming seriously hurt.  Pesticide-free maintenance with organic treatments will be a dismal failure.  The use of no-risk conventional weed control products would actually prevent slipping injuries on sports turf.  Children need pest-free sports fields to avoid falling & hurting themselves.  The risk to children has forced municipal officials to re-think their policies against no-risk conventional pest control products.  Organic pesticide-free maintenance has been a threat to children & has been a dismal failure.

   Wallingford, Connecticut, USA

Deaths Caused By Weed Picking & Prohibition

Deadly Failures Of Medieval & Ineffective Organic Pesticide-Free Maintenance   

An Ontario resident did not realize that manual weed picking a toxic noxious weed on his property would become a deadly form of organic pesticide-free maintenance.  Contact with this toxic noxious weed resulted in severe burns to his hands & arms, eventually forcing him to be hospitalized    ultimately, he died.  This resident-victim was ultimately doomed by prohibition that prevented him from using effective & no-risk conventional herbicides for controlling weeds, & he was forced to pull the toxic noxious weeds by hand, an action that ultimately led to his death.  The death was the fault of manual weed picking & prohibition.  Additionally, Ontario was also the scene of the death of a dog resulting from prohibition.  Organic pesticide-free maintenance has been a deadly & dismal failure.

Examples With Confirmed Reports Of Death   

   Kingston, Ontario

   Smiths Falls, Ontario

Exorbitant Costs Of Maintenance & Repairs

Failures Of Medieval & Ineffective Organic Pesticide-Free Maintenance   

Harmful-prohibitions has inflicted stunningly exorbitant organic pesticide-free maintenance costs    in the hundreds & hundreds of millions of dollars    because of uncontrolled ecological pest disasters with invasive weeds & destructive insects.  Before the imposition of prohibitions, municipalities & residents would have spent much less for effective & no-risk conventional weed control products.   Conversely, Fiesta green alternative    which cost thousands & thousands of dollars more    has been ineffective & has not worked, even when applied four times per year.  Who can afford this #@!!% ban nonsense ?!?!  The question of anti-pesticide prohibition has revolved less around health & environment concerns, & more around products & services that are sold at stunningly exorbitant costs that are not economically viable.  With the imposition of prohibition, municipalities have faced rapidly deteriorating playing surfaces requiring exorbitant expenses. Many surfaces have been extensively damaged & many have been rendered unplayable, compromising the safety of children & adults.  Pesticide-free maintenance with organic treatments has been a dismal failure.  The exorbitant cost of organic pesticide-free maintenance has forced municipal officials to re-think their policies against no-risk conventional pest control products.  Organic pesticide-free maintenance has been an expensive & dismal failure.

Fiesta Green Alternative Herbicide

Inferior & Ineffective Green Alternative Herbicide That Cannot Replace Effective & No-Risk Conventional Products   

In order to validate prohibition, anti-pesticide government officials & activists had somehow assured the public that safe, effective, & affordable green alternatives, like Fiesta herbicides, were already available to replace effective conventional pest control products.  They were wrong.  Fiesta is inferior & almost-totally-ineffective as a single-application when compared to single-applications of conventional products like Killex, Par III, & other three-way herbicides that contain the active ingredient 2,4-D.  The vast majority of Fiesta users overwhelmingly condemn it.  In fact, quite often, observers believe it would be better to do nothing rather than use Fiesta herbicide.  Fiesta herbicide is a primary reason for the repeated failures of provincial & municipal prohibitions imposed against no-risk conventional pest control products.  With prohibition, professionals & residents are being forced to rely on Fiesta.  In order to validate their prohibitions, government officials have been perpetuating the fake-news myth that a single application of Fiesta herbicide successfully replace conventional products such as Killex & Par III.  This is wrong.  The ineffectiveness of Fiesta has forced municipal officials to re-think their policies against no-risk conventional pest control products.  Organic pesticide-free maintenance with Fiesta has been a dismal failure.

Garbage Dump Urban Green Spaces

Failures Of Medieval & Ineffective Organic Pesticide-Free Maintenance   

Because of prohibition, public & residential green spaces have turned into garbage dumps.  Unfortunately, it is impossible to keep playing surfaces well-maintained, safe, & attractive without no-risk conventional pest control products.  Green alternative pesticides are now known to be totally ineffective.  With prohibition, the safety & appearance of playing surfaces are jeopardized with ecological disasters from uncontrolled & dangerous insects like white grubs, & from invasive & dangerous weeds like dandelions.  Safe turf playing surfaces are destroyed    children are at high-risk of slipping & tripping & becoming seriously hurt.  In essence, reverting back to conventional products will prevent harm & will keep children safe from injuries.  The ineffectiveness of organic pesticide-free maintenance has forced municipal officials to re-think their policies against no-risk conventional pest control products.  Organic pesticide-free maintenance has been a dismal failure.

Golf Courses In Canada    Most Gone Forever

Failures Of Organic Golf Courses That Pretended To Be Pesticide-Free   

There is no major trend of organic pesticide-free golf courses in Canada.  There are no golf courses that have not adopted a policy of no-pesticides.  Acceptable playing conditions can only be achieved through the use of no-risk conventional pest control products.  In the past, there have been four, yes only four, golf courses that have pretended being organic pesticide-free in Canada, most are now gone forever.  Organic pesticide-free maintenance on golf courses has been a dismal failure.

Golf Courses In Canada & USA    Existing

Failures Of Existing Organic Golf Courses That Pretend To Be Pesticide-Free   

It is impossible for golf course superintendents to maintain high-quality playing conditions & aesthetics by relying upon organic pesticide-free maintenance practices.  Organic pesticide-free maintenance on golf courses has been a dismal failure.

Integrated Pest Management

Failure Of Futile & Ineffective IPM   

In order to validate prohibition, anti-pesticide government officials & activists had somehow assured the public that safe, effective, & affordable green alternative practices, like IPM, were already available to replace effective conventional pest control products.  IPM is nonsense dreaming in the outer limits.  It would be better to do nothing rather  than use IPM, which does not effectively & consistently control the pests of established turf & ornamental plants    at best, it may provide some limited improvement towards the efficiency & effectiveness of conventional pest control products.  Organic pesticide-free maintenance with IPM has been a dismal failure.

Manual Weed Picking

Inferior & Ineffective Green Alternative Practice That Cannot Replace Effective & No-Risk Conventional Products   

In order to validate prohibition, anti-pesticide government officials & activists had somehow assured the public that safe, effective, & affordable green alternative practices, like manual weed picking, were already available to replace effective conventional pest control products.  They were wrong.  Manual weed picking is totally ineffective for weed control, & does not work.  It is impossible to successfully maintain properties as weed-free, safe, & attractive by using practices like manual weed picking.  It is not cost effective, & is back-breakingly labour-intensive.  Manual weed picking is a primary reason for the repeated failures of prohibitions against no-risk conventional pest control products used in the urban landscape.  With the adoption of prohibitions, municipal employees & residents are being forced to resort to the back-breaking & agonizing job of manual weed picking.  This means that municipal employees & residents are being devalued & humiliated as mere cotton-pickers.  It would be better to do nothing rather than rely upon manual weed picking.  Relying on manual weed picking means that urban green spaces will inevitably become weed-infested garbage dumps.  The ineffectiveness of manual weed picking has forced municipal officials to re-think their policies against no-risk conventional pest control products.  Organic pesticide-free maintenance with manual weed picking has been a dismal failure.

Nematode Insecticides

Inferior & Ineffective Green Alternative Insecticide That Cannot Replace Effective & No-Risk Conventional Products   

In order to validate prohibition, anti-pesticide government officials & activists had somehow assured the public that safe, effective, & affordable green alternatives, like nematode insecticides, were already available to replace effective conventional pest control products.  They were wrong.  It would be better to do nothing rather than use these failed nematodes.  Failed nematode insecticides are not viable, not efficacious, not practical, & not economically viable.  These inferior green alternatives cannot be consistently considered as true alternatives to conventional insecticides, since the insect pests are often only suppressed, & not controlled.  Organic pesticide-free maintenance with nematodes has been a dismal failure.

Prohibition Reversed

Harmful-Prohibitions Reversed Because Of The Failures Of Organic Pesticide-Free Maintenance   

When it comes to prohibition, state & municipal & county officials are thinking twice about banning pesticides by looking at the failures of organic pesticide-free maintenance.  Prohibition has created catastrophic ecological carnage of uncontrolled invasive weeds & destructive insects.  Without conventional pest control products, green spaces & hard-landscapes have become pest-infested & dangerous garbage dumps because it is impossible to maintain them by relying upon so-called alternatives.  Organic pesticide-free maintenance has been a dismal failure.

Prohibition & Real Trends

Failures Of Harmful-Prohibitions Against No-Risk Conventional Pest Control Products   

Government officials are no longer readily jumping in favour of reckless, arbitrary, & doomed-to-fail prohibitions.  There are over sixty jurisdictions that have stopped or rescinded or limited or have begun to repeal harmful-prohibitions, or have granted commercial businesses with an exception status.  The following jurisdictions have joined the real trends against reckless, arbitrary, & doomed-to-fail prohibitions    see below.

Vinegar Acid

Inferior & Ineffective Green Alternative Herbicide That Cannot Replace Effective & No-Risk Conventional Products   

In order to validate prohibition, anti-pesticide government officials & activists had somehow assured the public that safe, effective, & affordable green alternatives, like vinegar acid, were already available to replace effective conventional weed control products.  They were wrong.  Vinegar acid is not only ineffective, but it is also more toxic & more dangerous    it can burn the eyes & skin.  Consequently, workers have had to wear protective masks & suits.  The ineffectiveness of vinegar has forced municipal officials to re-think their policies against no-risk conventional pest control products.  Organic pesticide-free maintenance with vinegar has been a dismal failure.

Failure Of Harmful-Prohibition Against No-Risk Conventional Pest Control Products

Allergies

KEY POINT  ―

Allergens Increased Because Weed Problems

SUMMARY  ―

Because of harmful-prohibition against no-risk conventional pest control products, the entire province of Ontario became covered with environmental allergens, originating from grasses, ragweed, & goldenrod that had been once controlled by now prohibited products. Seasonal allergy sufferers were, more than ever, sniffling, sneezing, & coughing.

Real Trends Against Prohibitions

SUMMARY  ―

The question of anti-pesticide prohibition revolves less around health & environment concerns, & more around products & services that are sold at stunningly exorbitant costs & catastrophic ecological carnage. When it comes to prohibition, state & municipal & county officials are thinking twice about banning pesticides by looking at the harms suffered by those jurisdictions that have been forced to endure the hardship & stunningly exorbitant costs of this #@!!% ban nonsense. Prohibition has been doomed-to-fail since it has created catastrophic ecological carnage of uncontrolled, invasive, & destructive weeds. Without no-risk conventional pest control products, green spaces & hard-landscapes became weed-infested & dangerous garbage dumps because it is impossible to maintain them by relying upon so-called alternatives. In fact, there are real trends against harmful-prohibitions. In America, there are dozens & dozens jurisdictions that have stopped or rescinded or limited or have begun to repeal harmful-prohibitions, or have granted commercial businesses & sports fields with exception statuses. In all cases, prohibitions against conventional pest control products used in the urban landscape have become dismal failures. Organic pesticide-free maintenance has been a dismal failure.

Harmful-Prohibition & Sign-Posting Rescinded

SUMMARY  ―

Parks commissioners at the city of Ashland, Oregon, USA, unanimously rescinded harmful-prohibition, & re-authorized no-risk conventional pest control products on baseball & softball infields since parks department staff reported that organic pesticides proved largely ineffective for controlling weeds. Weeds took over the dirt areas of the infields, creating an uneven & unsafe surface, presenting a liability issue for the parks department. Pesticide-free maintenance with organic pesticides was a dismal failure.

Devastating Business Damage & Stagnation

SUMMARY  ―

Because of municipal prohibitions, professional lawn care companies have been extensively damaged & stagnating. As a direct result of harmful-prohibition, these companies lost over 40 per cent of their customers. Prohibitions took away all their gains made in the previous ten years, & made it difficult, if not impossible, to recover. Prohibition has led to horrendous & catastrophic carnage, in the form of immense losses of revenues, business failures, bankruptcy, & unemployment. Prohibition forced companies to adopt organic pesticide-free maintenance, which was a dismal failure.

British Columbia

KEY POINT  ―

Exception Statuses, Garbage Dump Green
Spaces, & Business Discrimination

SUMMARY  ―

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 harmful-prohibitions by taking advantage of exception statuses that they have conveniently inserted in their by-laws. Municipal prohibitions have provided inconsistent & unfair exception statuses for invasive weeds & destructive insects  ―  mostly for city-owned properties  ―  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 harmful-prohibition is adopted, local businesses will disappear into oblivion within 2 or 3 years, & vast numbers of workers will 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 no-risk conventional pest control products, properties have become pest-infested & dangerous garbage dumps because it is impossible to control invasive weeds & destructive insects by using phony & inferior & ineffective green alternative pesticides. Organic pesticide-free maintenance will be a dismal failure. Municipal prohibitions have led to catastrophic ecological 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, & the destructiveness of their harmful-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.

Chicago

KEY POINTS  ―

IPM Cancelled & Harmful-Prohibition Rescinded

The Worst Garbage Dump Playing Field Conditions

SUMMARY  ―

At the city of Chicago, Illinois, USA, its Integrated Pest Management ( IPM ) & pesticide-free program was pronounced a dismal failure because they contributed to the worst garbage dump playing field conditions in the Chicago district in more than a decade. After four years, Chicago cancelled the IPM program & rescinded the harmful-prohibition against pest control products. Because of Chicago’s adoption of IPM pesticide-free program, weeds represented more than 60 per cent of ground coverage. IPM cultural practices failed & did not control invasive weeds & destructive insects. Organic pesticide-free maintenance with IPM was a dismal failure.

KEY POINTS  ―

Unsafe & Unplayable Garbage Dump Sports Fields

Harmful-Prohibition Needed To Be Rejected For The
Safety Of Children, Play Areas, & The Environment

Stunningly Exorbitant Maintenance Costs

SUMMARY  ―

Many towns throughout Connecticut, USA, have had numerous problems maintaining fields since the state-prohibition against pest control products went in to effect. Predictably, pesticide-free sports fields suffered from disrepair & became potentially hazardous situations. Furthermore, since the imposition of harmful-prohibition, cities & towns have faced rapidly deteriorating playing surfaces requiring exorbitant expenses. For example, the town of Hebron found that maintaining an elementary school field went from 10,212-dollars to 17,310-dollars, a 70 per cent increase. Throughout Connecticut, school officials have been forced to use more expensive & labor-intensive organic treatments, which have proven ineffective. Many fields were extensively damaged & many were unplayable, compromising student safety. Pesticide-free maintenance with organic treatments was a dismal failure.

Failure Of Medieval & Ineffective Organic Pesticide-Free Maintenance

Coquitlam

KEY POINTS  ―

$1,000,000 The Estimated Cost Of Prohibition

The City Of Dandelions With Cosmetic Roses

SUMMARY  ―

Who can afford a million-dollar prohibition ?!?! One million dollars. In the city of Coquitlam, British Columbia, this is the estimated cost of anti-pesticide prohibition. One million dollars. This is the cost of prohibiting conventional products that are Health-Canada-approved, federally-legal, scientifically-safe, practically-non-toxic, & will cause no harm to human health & the environment. One million dollars. This is cost of prohibiting no-risk products to satisfy the lunatжc-cravings of anti-pesticide city councilor & therapist Selina Robinson  …  is this woman’s coercion, intimidation, screeching, & terrжrizing worth that much money ?!?! Organic pesticide-free maintenance brought on by prohibition would be a dismal failure.

In prohibition-stricken jurisdictions, cities like Coquitlam know it is impossible to maintain their rose gardens without the use of no-risk conventional pest control products. City councilor Bev Welsh had the temerity to ask for an exception status for the Centennial Rose Garden, a local tourist attraction & wedding venue that boasts 800 plants & 60 varieties of roses. Coquitlam has already imposed a harmful-prohibition against pest control products used in the urban landscape under the pretext that « cosmetic » use of pest control products is not necessary. Isn’t the maintenance of rose gardens the very definition of « cosmetic » ? The demise of Coquitlam’s rose gardens will represent the failure of organic pesticide-free maintenance. Rose gardens will die, & lawns will be rampant with dandelions.

Cornwall

KEY POINT  ―

Roadside Weed Spraying Resumed

SUMMARY  ―

Municipalities, like Cornwall, Ontario, have claimed a pesticide ban exemption under the health & safety regulation which includes toxic plants. This, in turn, allows the municipalities to avoid non-chemical options which do not work, such as mowing. Municipalities then use the « alternative notification process » to place a single advertisement in any local newspaper, & then spray with un-marked vehicles in order to avoid the attention of anti-pesticide extremists. Organic pesticide-free maintenance with non-chemical options was a dismal failure.

SUMMARY  ―

In the city of Durango, Colorado, USA, harmful-prohibition has inflicted stunningly exorbitant maintenance costs. And despite these costs, Durango has also suffered with garbage dump green spaces. Can municipalities, like Durango, afford the hardship & cost of this #@!!% pesticide ban nonsense ?!?! Organic pesticide-free maintenance is a dismal failure. Green alternative pesticides, as well as organic fertilizers, did not work in Durango. The question of anti-pesticide prohibition revolved less around health & environment concerns, & more around products & services that were sold at stunningly exorbitant costs. Organic pesticide-free maintenance with green alternatives was a dismal failure.

Failure Of Medieval & Ineffective Organic Pesticide-Free Maintenance

Edmonton

KEY POINTS  ―

Pesticide-Free Parks Infested With Weed Growth

Reversed Harmful-Prohibition Because Of
Pesticide-Free Parks Infested With Weed Growth

Cessation Of Inferior-Fiesta

SUMMARY  ―

The city of Edmonton, Alberta, has concluded that its organic pesticide-free parks have been a total & dismal failure. Edmonton’s organic pesticide-free parks have become more infested with weeds, & now look like garbage dumps. Predictably, mechanical & other non-chemical methods of weed control have been ineffective. Among Edmonton home-owners, there has been a large increase in the use of green alternative pesticides. Not surprisingly, Edmonton has reported increased weed growth. All green alternatives are bogus & dismal failures  ―  they do not work & they are ineffective, inadequate, high-risk, more toxic, & stunningly expensive. Edmonton officials have also proposed to convert its garbage dump parks into community gardens or naturalized areas. Finally, the city announced that it has ceased the use of the inferior-Fiesta green alternative herbicide to control dandelions that have invaded, choked, & destroyed community playing surfaces. Organic pesticide-free maintenance with mechanical & other non-chemical methods of weed control was a dismal failure.

Failures Of Harmful-Prohibitions Against No-Risk Conventional Pest Control Products
Inferior & Ineffective Green Alternative Pesticide That Cannot Replace Effective & No-Risk Conventional Products

Emerald Ash Borer

KEY POINT  ―

Ash Trees Face Extinction Unless Conventional
Insect-Control-Products Are Allowed

SUMMARY  ―

Five of the six most prominent ash tree species in North America are critically endangered  ―  only one step from going extinct  ―  with the sixth species merely endangered. Ash trees comprise billions of trees in forest lands, yet once emerald ash borer has arrived in a community, it can kill all the mature ash trees in a matter of three to four years. The larvae of the emerald ash borer cause a deterioration that leads to the trees’ inevitable death. Unless conventional insecticides are used, communities had better get used to the sound of chain saws. If emerald ash borer infestations have been detected within 10 to 15 miles, it is suggested to start pro-active conventional insecticide applications immediately.

By the time symptoms are noticeable, it is already too late to do anything to save the infested trees. There is currently no cure for an emerald ash borer infestation, but if pro-active steps are taken, conventional insecticide applications have proven effective in protecting ash trees.

So-called green alternatives, like TreeAzin injections, provide marginal control at best. If TreeAzin is the only option, then it would be better to do nothing rather than use TreeAzin.

Conventional insecticides that are, in fact, scientifically-safe, will effectively control emerald ash borer. Any prohibitions against these insecticides will lead to emerald ash borer damage & death. Either begin a program of no-risk conventional insecticide treatments, or remove & replace the threatened ash trees. If harmful-prohibition has been self-imposed, communities will simply have to get used to the sound of chain saws.

Failure Of Medieval & Ineffective Organic Pesticide-Free Maintenance

Everett

KEY POINTS  ―

Harmful-Prohibition Reversed & Spraying Resumed

Manual Weed Picking Ineffective

Exploiting Elderly & Unemployed People

SUMMARY  ―

The Lowell Park pesticide-free pilot-project was ended by the city of Everett, Washington, USA. The application of weed control products was resumed because not enough volunteers could keep the park up to city standards. It was too much work for volunteers to maintain the whole park. Without the use of no-risk conventional products, city of Everett was forced to resort to the back-breaking & agonizing job of weed pulling by hand. Resident weed-picking volunteers were mostly elderly & unemployed. These volunteers were needed because green alternative pesticides did not work. It is now common-knowledge that there are no viable, no efficacious, no economical, & no low-risk alternatives to replace conventional herbicides. Organic pesticide-free maintenance with manual weed picking was a dismal failure.

Inferior & Ineffective Green Alternative Herbicide That Cannot Replace Effective & No-Risk Conventional Products

Fiesta

KEY POINT  ―

Better To Do Nothing Rather Than Use Fiesta

SUMMARY  ―

Fiesta ( aka Scotts Ecosense & Weed-B-Gon ) is a so-called green alternative herbicide that somehow replaces three-way conventional phenoxy turf herbicides, such as Killex, Par III, & others, that contain the active ingredient 2,4-D. Only the use of conventional herbicides has been shown to be effective against broad-leaved weeds  ―  their applications are no-risk, safe, & effective. By comparison, Fiesta is inferior & almost-totally-ineffective as a single-application à when compared to single-applications of conventional products like Killex, Par III, & other three-way herbicides that contain the active ingredient 2,4-D.

The vast majority of Fiesta users overwhelmingly condemn it. In fact, quite often, observers believe it would be better to do nothing rather than use Fiesta herbicide.

Fiesta herbicide is a primary reason for the repeated failures of provincial & municipal prohibitions imposed against no-risk conventional pest control products. With harmful-prohibition, professionals & residents are being forced to rely on Fiesta. In order to validate their prohibitions, government officials have been perpetuating the fake-news myth that a single application of Fiesta herbicide successfully replace conventional products such as Killex & Par III. This is wrong.

Failure Of Harmful-Prohibition Against No-Risk Conventional Products In The Agriculture Industry

France

KEY POINT  ―

The Miserable Failure Of The Ecophyto Plan

SUMMARY  ―

France’s politicized & national prohibition against neonicotinoid insecticides has ended in failure. Honey bee numbers continue to fall despite prohibition. Since 2008, the French government has squandered nearly 570-million-dollars US on implementing a failed plan called Ecophyto. Numerous pest control products were arbitrarily prohibited, which infuriated farmers who desperately needed these products. This plan had a 5-year environmental agenda with a 50 per cent arbitrary cut in the use of these products would be reached, if possible. Instead of declining, use actually increased by 12 per cent. Ecophyto’s organic pesticide-free farming was a miserable failure. France must stop its politicized & science-phobic environmental extremism against pest control products.

Canada’s Former Organic Golf Courses Have Fallen
Into Receivership & Bankruptcy  –  Most Gone Forever

SUMMARY  ―

Organic pesticide-free maintenance has become a major trend in the golf industry. [ ?!?! ] This is ridiculous & wrong. Here is the Canadian golf industry’s official position statements on this form of maintenance   ―      golf courses have not adopted a policy of no-pesticides   •   Canadian conditions are not conducive for pesticide-free maintenance      acceptable playing conditions can only be achieved through the use of pest control products      these products are a necessity due to the requirement for professional turfgrasses grown in difficult climate conditions. Consequently, there are no organic pesticide-free golf courses in Canada. Organic pesticide-free golf course maintenance has been a dismal failure. There have been four, yes only four, golf courses that have pretended being organic pesticide-free in Canada, which have been dismal failures  ―  see below.

Green Alternatives

KEY POINT  ―

Not Viable, Not Efficacious,
Not Economical, & Not Low-Risk

SUMMARY  ―

Green alternative pesticides are products that were supposed to replace conventional pest control products. Despite claims to the contrary, overall, there are no viable, no efficacious, no economical, & no low-risk alternatives to replace conventional products. So-called alternatives, such as corn gluten meal, Fiesta, flame-throwers, nematodes, & Sarritor, are dismal failures. Green alternative pesticides are not viable, not efficacious, not economical, not low-risk  …  most are not even legal. Fortunately, conventional pest control products are safe, effective, economical, & no-risk. Organic pesticide-free maintenance with these alternatives has been a dismal failure.

KEY POINT  ―

Reversal Of Harmful-Prohibition &
Hypocritical Shift On Anti-Pesticide Policy

SUMMARY  ―

In Ontario, because of the city of Guelph’s municipal prohibition, professional lawn care companies lost at least 30 per cent of their customers within two years. Harmful-prohibition led to horrendous & catastrophic carnage, in the form of immense losses of revenues, business failures, bankruptcy, & unemployment. Because of prohibition, home-owners had to resort to the back-breaking & agonizing job of weed pulling by hand, spending four hours per day plucking dandelions like cotton-pickers. According municipal officials, organic pesticide-free maintenance was a dismal failure since it was not possible to control weeds without no-risk conventional products. Three years after it was imposed, Guelph rescinded its harmful-prohibition, & hired a contractor to apply at least three applications of conventional herbicides to eliminate weeds & grasses. This reversal of prohibition was a hypocritical shift on anti-pesticide policy.

Public green spaces had become garbage dumps that had been infested with dandelions & other weeds, & were leaving a terrible impression not only for residents but also for tourists. For professional lawn care companies, prohibition led to horrendous & catastrophic business carnage, in the form of immense losses of revenues, business failures, bankruptcy, & unemployment, & customers disintegrating by over 50 per cent. No one living in prohibition jurisdictions wants to live in #@!!% weed-infested, insect-damaged, & expensive garbage dumps.

SUMMARY  ―

In Hamilton, Ontario, children cannot play on the grass because of the proliferation of weeds. Both city of Hamilton & province of Ontario had imposed harmful-prohibitions against conventional pest control products used, which led to dangerous garbage dump green spaces. There were no viable, no efficacious, no economical, no practical, & no low-risk green alternatives to replace these products. Organic pesticide-free maintenance was a dismal failure. Moreover, no one wanted this #@!!% dangerous ban nonsense that placed their children at risk. An official said if more isn’t done, sports fields would be 98 per cent weeds in another decade. A city councilor complained that children in the area couldn’t play on the grass because of the proliferation of weeds.

SUMMARY  ―

The district of Highland Park, in the state of Illinois, USA, concluded that organic & pesticide-free maintenance of its sports fields was a dismal failure. Highland Park needed to rescue its weed-ridden garbage-dump sports fields from the failed practices of organic pesticide-free maintenance. Three major sports fields had been over-run with more than 60 per cent weed invasion. Highland Park had to resort to the back-breaking & agonizing job of weed pulling by hand. The city’s professional labour force, along with volunteers, have been devalued into a group of mere cotton-pickers. Manual weed picking was ineffective.

Pesticide-Free Sports Fields Over-Run With Weeds

Man Dies Because Of Prohibition & Toxic Noxious Weeds

SUMMARY  ―

The city of Kingston, Ontario, had sports fields that look like garbage dumps  ―  they were over-run with weed pests because there were no valid economical alternatives to replace prohibited herbicides. Kingston does not have the budget for sodding or slit-seeding in order to repair all of the damage caused by the harmful-prohibition that allows only organic pesticide-free maintenance.

Kingston was also the scene of a death resulting from prohibition. A home-owner did not realize that hand-weeding a toxic noxious weed on his property would contribute to his death. This home-owner was ultimately doomed by prohibition that prevented him from using the safest & most effective products for controlling weeds, & he was forced to pull the toxic noxious weeds by hand, an action that ultimately led to his death.

SUMMARY  ―

In Lawrence, Kansas, USA, anti-pesticide extremists lobbied the city’s commissioners to convert all 52 parks to organic pesticide-free maintenance. Without the use of no-risk conventional pest control products, Lawrence had to resort to the back-breaking & agonizing job of weed pulling by hand. The city’s professional labour force was devalued into a group of mere cotton-pickers. Two years later, government officials rescinded harmful-prohibition since residents had been no longer interested to volunteer their time in a losing battle against weeds. Before prohibition, Lawrence spent less than 10,000-dollars per year for conventional pest control products. However, municipal officials estimated that the cataclysmic cost of a pesticide ban would be 213,000-dollars for equipment, 116,000-dollars annually for staff, & 95,000-dollars annually for materials. Organic pesticide-free maintenance with manual weed picking was a dismal failure.

SUMMARY  ―

In Lincoln City, Oregon, USA, the move to eliminate pesticides in its parks resulted in a surge of weed growth. As a result, Lincoln City spent 260 staff hours with people on their hands & knees weeding, & they still could not keep up with the weeds. Back when the department was applying no-risk conventional pesticides, parks workers would spend only 60 hours. Lincoln City has had to neglect tasks ranging from manicuring trees to pressure-washing & painting trash cans. Green alternatives, like vinegar acid, were not only ineffective, but also more toxic & more dangerous  …  they can burn the eyes & skin. Consequently, workers had to wear protective masks & suits. Three years after going pesticide-free, conventional pest control products were needed again in weed-infested parks. Organic pesticide-free maintenance with vinegar acid & manual weed picking were dismal failures.

SUMMARY  ―

The city of London, Ontario, has been unable to save its dying street trees without the use of no-risk conventional pest control products. This because London imposed a reckless & arbitrary prohibition against conventional pest control products used in the urban landscape. The result has been uncontrollable & destructive tree insects. London, the former « forest city », has needed to kill 96 per cent of its ash trees because of its harmful-prohibition which was imposed under the pretext of protecting health & environment. In London, ash trees face extinction by emerald ash borer insects unless conventional insecticides are allowed. Consequently, London became a pesticide-free city with dead trees, & has been faced with a huge wood disposal problem. London’s catastrophic emerald ash borer problem is uncontrollable. This is in addition to London’s catastrophic & uncontrollable weed problems that have invaded city-owned & residential properties. It was impossible to control weeds with inferior green alternative products like Fiesta. Organic pesticide-free maintenance has been a dismal failure. London’s fanatжcal bureaucrats went as far as to strike dandelions from their list of nuisance weeds. [ ?!?! ] If the dandelion is no longer defined as a weed, the city no longer has an obligation to kill & control them. [ !!! ]

KEY POINTS  ―

Pesticide-Free IPM Failure At Madison

Reversed Harmful-Prohibition &
Violated Its Own Anti-Pesticide Policies

SUMMARY  ―

In Madison, Wisconsin, USA, the city’s anti-pesticide pesticide policy says  ―  the city shall not use pesticides to control dandelions & other broad-leaved weeds on general parklands, median strips, street terraces, roadsides, general lawn areas, & athletic fields. This policy is in line with an Integrated Pest Management ( IPM ) approach, where all city departments should give preference to non-pesticide management practices , which do not work, & use the so-called least-risky pesticides only as a last resort, which is incorrect.

Nonetheless, Madison’s use of pesticides has been described as schizophrenic since it has violated several of its own anti-pesticide policy. Madison continues to use hundreds of gallons of pesticides, such as glyphosate, 2,4-D, & several others, on athletic fields & other city lands  ―  because green alternatives & organic pesticide-free maintenance are dismal failures & do not work.

Furthermore, Madison’s anti-pesticide policy conflicts with the Wisconsin state statute, stating that local governments may not prohibit the use of, or otherwise regulate, pesticides. Madison’s harmful-prohibition has been a total & dismal failure.

Inferior & Ineffective Green Alternative Practice That Cannot Replace Effective & No-Risk Conventional Products

Manual Weed Picking

KEY POINTS  ―

It Would Be Better To Do Nothing
Rather Than Weed Pick By Hand

Green Alternative Practices, Like Manual
Weed Picking, Are Bogus & Dismal Failures

SUMMARY  ―

Manual weed picking is totally ineffective for weed control, & does not work. It is impossible to successfully maintain properties as weed-free, safe, & attractive by using practices like manual weed picking. It is not cost effective, & is back-breakingly labour-intensive.

Manual weed picking is a primary reason for the repeated failures of prohibitions against no-risk conventional pest control products used in the urban landscape. With the adoption of prohibitions, municipal employees & residents are being forced to resort to the back-breaking & agonizing job of manual weed picking. This means that municipal employees & residents are being devalued & humiliated as mere cotton-pickers.

It would be better to do nothing rather than rely upon manual weed picking. Relying on manual weed picking means that urban green spaces will inevitably become weed-infested garbage dumps. Not surprisingly, prohibition has been a dismal failure for municipalities. No one wants to live in #@!!% pest-infested garbage dumps.

Municipalities desperately need conventional pest control products, & not failed green alternative practices like manual weed picking. Instead of admitting that #@!!% manual weed picking is a dismal failure, government officials & fanatжcal-activists prefer living in the world of false-facts & junk science.

It is impossible for home-owners & professionals to keep their properties safe, attractive, & pest-free by using so-called green alternative practices like manual weed picking.

The City Of Hypocritical Anti-Pesticide Policy

Harmful-Prohibition Reversed &

Pesticides All Over The Place

SUMMARY  ―

Mississauga, Ontario, is the city of hypocritical anti-pesticide policy because it uses pest control products on an arbitrary basis. Mississauga implemented prohibition against conventional pest control products under the pretext of protecting health & environment. While ordinary folks are driven to their wit’s end trying to keep their properties from being over-run by weeds & other pests, Mississauga has still allowed itself to spray pesticides with impunity, i.e. all over the place. Nevertheless, Mississauga’s harmful-prohibition still resulted in municipal employees being forced to endure the back-breaking & agonizing job of weed-pulling by hand. Additionally, Mississauga’s harmful-prohibition guaranteed that natural grass sports fields were on the path to extinction. Mississauga began replacing natural grass sports fields with artificial / synthetic fields. This is because Mississauga’s prohibition made it impossible to nurse damaged natural grass sports fields back to health. Organic pesticide-free maintenance was a dismal failure. With no way to save fields that become infested with weeds, the sensible solution was to switch to plastic turf.

Pesticide-Free IPM & Fiesta Failure At Morden

Fiesta Was Ineffective & Did Not Work

$150,000 Exorbitant Costs Because Of Prohibition

Fiesta Corruption With Govt Officials Acting As Salesmen

SUMMARY  ―

In Morden, Manitoba, city council resolved to increase funding to its Integrated Pest Management ( IPM ) plan which raised the budget to 150,000-dollars, because of Manitoba’s provincial prohibition. The increased funding allowed for more frequent applications of Fiesta herbicide, the only product allowed by Manitoba’s harmful-prohibition. City council resolved a treatment plan with green alternative Fiesta for more than 60 acres of city of Morden property, which included some parks & boulevards on main thoroughfares throughout Morden. Before Manitoba’s prohibition, the city of Morden was using a product called Par III, which was found to be more highly effective in controlling broad-leaved weeds like thistles & dandelions. So effective that Morden only had to apply Par III once in two years. Conversely, Fiesta was ineffective & did not work, even when applied four times per year. Who can afford this #@!!% ban nonsense ?!?! Organic pesticide-free maintenance with Fiesta was a dismal failure.

Furthermore, examples of Fiesta shilling have been found at the provincial & municipal levels of government. Why are provincial & municipal officials providing unauthorized free advertising for this commercial product ?!?! Why have they ben misappropriating tax-payer’s money promoting this product ?!?! Who is paying government officials to covertly operate as shills for Fiesta herbicide ?!?!

In Nanaimo, British Columbia, it is impossible for municipal employees to protect urban green spaces & hard surface infra-structures without the use of no-risk conventional pest control products. Because of the Nanaimo pesticide ban, they look like pest-infested, low-quality, & dangerous surfaces that look like garbage dumps, especially the thoroughfares. Not surprisingly, Nanaimo’s truth-challenged anti-pesticide government officials have attempted to deceive the public by falsely alleging that their pesticide ban is somehow not responsible for ugly weeds growing in road cracks. In fact, it is impossible for Nanaimo to keep its thoroughfares weed-free by using so-called Integrated Pest Management ( IPM ). It is also impossible for Nanaimo to keep its urban green spaces, such as sports fields, with good-quality playing conditions & aesthetics, by using IPM. It is now common knowledge that organic pesticide-free maintenance with IPM has been a dismal failure.

SUMMARY  ―

In Naperville, Illinois, USA, observers are highly concerned that the mock-campaigns of paranoia & conspiracies against pest control products are having a negative impact on the children in their community. Naperville’s self-imposed pesticide ban has arbitrarily denied everyone access to safer technologies, & has forced them to rely on alternative products that are dismal failures because they do not work, & because they are not reliable.

Additionally, Naperville exploits children & elderly people, who are forced to perform the back-breaking & agonizing job of manual weed picking ?!?! Do Naperville’s residents want to be forced to adopt the failed & ineffective practices, which includes manual weed picking ?!?! It would be better to do nothing rather than rely upon manual weed picking. Any form of prohibition in Naperville will actually harm children & will represent a danger to children.

Because of harmful-prohibition, children will be forced to play on #@!!% pest-infested & dangerous garbage dumps. These children are safe when pesticide bans are stopped. The risk assessment of no-risk conventional pest control products indicates that they are scientifically-safe, &, when used properly, will not cause harm to children, people, animals, or the environment in Naperville. Organic pesticide-free maintenance with manual weed picking has been a dismal failure.

Inferior & Ineffective Green Alternative Insecticide That Cannot Replace Effective & No-Risk Conventional Products

Nematodes

KEY POINT  ―

Better To Do Nothing Rather Than Use Nematodes

SUMMARY  ―

Recommending entomo-pathogenic nematode insecticides for controlling destructive insects of turf is mis-guided & wrong. It would be better to do nothing rather use these failed nematodes. Recommending them merely validates the screeching monkeys who blindly & inexpertly oppose no-risk conventional pest control products. Failed nematode insecticides are not viable, not efficacious, not practical, & not economically viable. These inferior green alternatives cannot be consistently considered as true alternatives to conventional insecticides, since the insect pests are often only suppressed, & not controlled.

Laboratory & field tests tend to indicate that even the best nematode species are only marginally effective in controlling insect infestations. On the other hand, conventional pest control products will fully & effectively control insect pests. Moreover, conventional products, such as Merit ( imidacloprid ), are deemed safer to use when compared to nematode insecticides. No one wants this #@!!% nonsense.

SUMMARY  ―

Officials in New Canaan, Connecticut, USA, have concluded that the use of no-risk conventional pest control products on sports fields had a positive effect on their quality, playability, & safety. Continuing to use conventional pest control products on sports fields would be healthier & safer for players. Sports fields that do not receive treatments of conventional pest control products will have harder surfaces, predictably they are more likely to cause player injuries like concussions.

By prohibiting conventional pest control products, sports fields in New Canaan had become pest-infested & dangerous garbage dumps because it was impossible to control invasive weeds & destructive insects by using organic pesticide-free IPM doctrines that include inferior green alternatives.

Inferior green alternative pesticides & IPM doctrines did not work. IPM will not control infestations of recurring invasive weeds & destructive insects. New Canaan’s use of IPM was politically-correct rubbish.

Pesticide-Free IPM Failure At Bethpage Golf Facility

SUMMARY  ―

In New York State, USA, Cornell University’s 30-year-old Integrated Pest Management ( IPM ) program faced closure after New York State governor Andrew Cuomo proposed to end its funding. Tax-payers can no longer afford the #@!!% IPM nonsense. Clearly, if the program was truly successful, it would receive further support from the government or even the industry. IPM was a failure & a waste of time & money.

For example, Cornell University’s greatest failure of IPM & organic pesticide-free maintenance is Bethpage State Park Green Golf Course. In fact, the pesticide-free disaster at Bethpage resulted in the large-scale-death of annual bluegrass. This disaster occurred because of Cornell’s inability to ensure turf species transition on the putting greens. Additionally, Bethpage cannot be considered an organic golf course. Bethpage is definitely not pesticide-free, but rather, it is merely less reliant on pesticides, which means it still uses pesticides with impunity. Organic pesticide-free golf course maintenance with IPM was a dismal failure.

In order to validate prohibition, anti-pesticide government officials & activists had somehow assured the public that safe, effective, & affordable green alternatives, like nematode insecticides, were already available to replace no-risk conventional pest control products. They were wrong. There are no viable, no efficacious, no economical, & no low-risk alternatives to replace no-risk conventional pest control products. In those jurisdictions where harmful-prohibition has been imposed, it would be preferable for the home-owner, or professional lawn care business, to do nothing rather than use nematode insecticides. Organic pesticide-free maintenance with nematodes has been a dismal failure.

A Time That Will Live in Environmental Infamy

SUMMARY  ―

All municipal prohibitions are failures. They are known to be failures in Canadian jurisdictions like Ontario. After 10 years of experiencing harmful-prohibitions in Ontario, all urban landscapes have become pest-infested & low-quality & dangerous playing surfaces that look like garbage dumps. This is because alternative maintenance products & practices were dismal & ridiculous failures. Because of harmful-prohibition in Ontario, the professional lawn care industry lost over 500,000,000-dollars, with over to 12,500 unemployed. Prohibition led to horrendous & catastrophic carnage, in the form of immense losses of revenues, business failures, bankruptcy, & unemployment. No one in wants this #@!!% ban nonsense. Organic pesticide-free maintenance with alternative products was a dismal failure.

The province of Ontario is known as « the dandelion province » since it had become over-run with dandelions because the safest & most effective herbicides for controlling this broad-leaved weed had been arbitrarily prohibited. Dandelions are the dominant ground cover for lawns, parks, schools, & sports fields in Ontario. Every front yard has become uglier, thanks to prohibition.

The Ontario prohibition against pest control products encouraged individuals to substitute the banned product for more toxic & more environmentally hazardous alternatives in the form of home-made concoctions that violate federal law. Products have been mis-used  ―  thanks to prohibition.

Because of prohibition, residents had been obtaining products either from other provinces, or mostly from across the border in the United States. It is not illegal to own or possess these products, only to apply them. Again, products have been mis-used  ―  thanks to prohibition.

No One Wants This #@!!% Organic Food Nonsense

Man Dies Because Of Prohibition & Toxic Noxious Weeds

SUMMARY  ―

Observers have no objection for organic farms & their choice of life-style, which, in this case, is a clear preference to live in a community that is being extorted into using organic food that is, in fact, needlessly expensive. However, observers do object to the imposition of organic choice on the majority of the community that does not want to eat this kind of food. Observers also object to organic farms becoming garbage dumps for dangerous & toxic weeds. Do local residents want to be exposed to these weeds just because of a reckless self-imposed prohibition against safe & effective weed control products ?!?!

Remember … pesticide bans & organic farming lead to dangerous & toxic weeds. And these weeds kill people. For example, in Ontario, a resident was ultimately doomed because of the provincial prohibition against pest control products. An Ontario resident who could no longer rely on acquiring safe effective products for controlling dangerous weeds on his property, was forced to perform hand-weeding that would contribute to his death. Contact with these dangerous weeds resulted in severe burns to his hands & arms, requiring emergency treatment at a hospital, where, ultimately, he died. This hapless resident was forced into hand-weeding since the Ontario government had recklessly prohibited products that would have safely & effectively controlled the dangerous weeds, & spared the man’s life. Unfortunately, the government of Ontario had decided that imposing harmful-prohibition was more important than the safety of residents. The death was Ontario’s fault.

It can be concluded that pesticide bans & organic farming represent a high risk of causing deaths since they inevitably lead to garbage dumps of dangerous & toxic weeds.

In the 9|11 era of the organic nightmare, enviro- & organic- extremists have been absolutely wrong & have been debunked about the myth of so-called « healthier » organic food, which has been a dismal failure. This food is an imposition of a life-style choice upon a hapless public, & it is a nightmarish form of extortion. Conversely, non-organic fruits & vegetables that are pesticide-treated have been shown to be scientifically-safe & will cause no harm since government agencies build in immense safety factors to comply with reference dose & acceptable daily intake recommendations. Who needs this #@!!% organic food nonsense ?!?!

Resorting To Sports Field Exemption To Spray 2,4-D
& Other Conventional Pest Control Products

SUMMARY  ―

The Ottawa-Carleton Ultimate Association is a corporation dedicated to the sport of disc frisbee ultimate in Ottawa, Ontario. Hosting the championships has allowed it to receive an exemption from the province of Ontario’s pesticide ban. According to John Wilkinson, minister of the environment  —  Pursuant to subsection 29(4) of Ontario Regulation 63/09 under the Pesticides Act, I am of the opinion that the use of the pesticides are necessary for the hosting of the event & it is in the public interest to do so. This exemption allowed for the use of no-risk conventional pesticides on sports fields that are in preparation for a national level sporting event.

Along with a season-long program of additional fertilization & over-seeding, a one-time pesticide application of Par III Turf Herbicide Solution ( 2,4-D, mecoprop, dicamba ) was used to control broad-leaved weeds, & Merit 0.5 G Insecticide was used to control white grubs. As a result, the turfgrass was expected to withstand much higher traffic & weed invasion & other pest infestations. The reduced weed & grub damage would also mean fewer bare patches & faster recovery after hard use. This would help reduce the chances of injury to players. Organic pesticide-free maintenance was not relied upon because it is a dismal failure.

Manual Weed Picking & Expensive
Green Alternative Pesticides Ineffective

SUMMARY  ―

In the state of Maine, USA, Portland’s city council approved a reckless & arbitrary prohibition against the use of no-risk conventional pest control products used in the urban landscape. Elected officials voted in favour of prohibition under the false-assumption that inferior green alternatives could somehow replace conventional pest control products. They quickly recognized that these alternatives were dismal failures not only because of their stunning costs, but also because of their lack of effectiveness. Portland’s prohibition, & its reliance on inferior green alternatives, caused catastrophic ecological carnage with uncontrollable pest problems that led to the imminent degradation of urban green spaces.

Additionally, Portland’s prohibition has allowed hundreds of exception statuses. Over the course of years, Portland’s prohibition would 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.

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. There should be no #@!!% exception statuses whatsoever.

On city-owned properties, Portland’s prohibition cost an exorbitant 700,000-dollars for organic pesticide-free maintenance, to replace the sports field turf because of uncontrollable & destructive pest infestations, & 30,000-dollars per year for additional staff time for manual weed picking & expensive green alternative pesticides that did not work. Organic pesticide-free maintenance was a dismal failure.

Cataclysmic Prohibition Costs Over $3,000 More

SUMMARY  ―

Before implementing its anti-pesticide prohibition, Portland, Oregon, spent a mere 371-dollars per year to keep the weeds out by using effective & no-risk conventional pest control products. However, pesticide-free parks came with the exorbitant cost of 3,621-dollars in annual maintenance, & 9,455-dollars in start-up costs for each new park. Nevertheless, Portland failed in its attempt to control invasive & destructive weeds. Who can afford this #@!!% ban nonsense ?!?!

Huge costs for paid labour were needed to work as back-breaking weed-pickers, as well as operators of hazardous flame-throwers. Organic pesticide-free maintenance meant devaluing a professional labour force into a group of cotton-pickers. Ultimately, the city was only able to afford pesticide-free parks through the use of volunteers who ultimately became unreliable, & whose numbers severely declined over a three-year period. Cataclysmic cost increases had been also required to pay parks department employees to haul weeds collected by volunteers, & to inspect the parks to make sure weeds had been under control. Organic pesticide-free maintenance was a dismal failure.

Prohibition’s Permitted Active Ingredients

Prohibition Became Morally Invalidated

SUMMARY  ―

Quebec officially acknowledges that 2,4-D is safe & does not pose an unacceptable risk to human health & the environment. Eventually, Quebec’s prohibition was morally invalidated by a lawsuit known as the NAFTA Challenge. Dow AgroSciences, the manufacturer of the herbicide 2,4-D, settled the NAFTA Challenge case with the Canadian government. Consequently, Quebec’s prohibition became morally invalidated by its acknowledgement.

Historically, Quebec had imposed the first-ever provincial ( i.e. state ) prohibition against no-risk conventional pest control products used in the urban landscape, such as 2,4-D. For decades, all provincial political parties in Quebec had supported prohibition, as well as many civil service agencies. Unfortunately, Quebec has imposed its harmful-prohibition exclusively against professional lawn care businesses & residential home-owners. Golf course & agricultural facilities were provided exception statuses despite using the very same ingredients that were arbitrarily prohibited from business & residential use. Surprisingly, Quebec was never truly pesticide-free since several conventional products have continued to be allowed. Organic pesticide-free maintenance with these exceptions has been a dismal failure.

KEY POINTS  ―

Pesticide-Free Parks Became Garbage Dumps

Exorbitant Amounts Of Money Were Required
For Repairing The Pesticide-Free Parks

SUMMARY  ―

On two occasions, elected officials at city of Regina, in Saskatchewan, dropped & stopped a proposal for a municipal prohibition against pest control products because it was not supported by health & policy experts, & because it was not supported by local residents. Nevertheless, Regina has adopted a self-imposed prohibition for several pesticide-free parks. Unfortunately, once parks were designated as pesticide-free, they became garbage dumps. Exorbitant amounts of money were spent for re-sodding the parks.

The city’s public works committee allowed parks to be designated pesticide-free if the number of weeds stayed below a certain level. However, according to officials, when too many weeds grow back, which would be the case every two years, the so-called pesticide-free parks will lose their designation & will be treated with no-risk conventional herbicides, with even higher doses & higher frequency. In fact, preventive & annual applications of a weed control products will require lower doses & lower frequency, which is more environmentally-friendly than Regina’s current program.

In conclusion, Regina’s bogus pesticide-free program will not truly be pesticide-free as long as it suits government officials, who will discretely continue spraying conventional pest control products with impunity. This form of organic pesticide-free maintenance with conventional herbicides is clearly a dismal failure.

SUMMARY  ―

Because of its harmful-prohibition, urban green spaces in Scarborough, Maine, USA, became pest-infested & low-quality & dangerous playing surfaces that looked like garbage dumps. Ultimately, ineffective green alternative pesticides & practices against white grubs were abandoned in favour of a more effective conventional insecticide called Dylox. This repeal of the anti-pesticides policy provided an inconsistent & unfair & unjustified exception status. This was a clear example where organic pesticide-free maintenance practices are dismal failures.

Scarborough’s organic maintenance has been stunningly expensive & not economically viable. Exorbitant costs were rising & rising & rising because of the failure of organic maintenance. In the first full fiscal year with the organic approach, Scarborough spent 121,578-dollars for turf management.

Demanding The Right To Use Pesticides

The Stunning Cost Of Fiesta Has Been Ten
Times The Cost Of What Was Done With
Effective & No-Risk Conventional Products

SUMMARY  ―

In Manitoba, Steinbach’s city council has joined other municipal councils to publicly urge the provincial government to drop its plans for a provincial prohibition against pest control products used in the urban landscape. These city councils believed that people should have the right to choose for themselves how they best take care of their own residential properties, & the municipalities should be able to choose how it takes care of its own public-owned properties.

Steinbach has faced a huge increase in the cost of weed control due to the province’s harmful-prohibition against no-risk conventional pest control products. Prior to prohibition, Steinbach had spent approximately 16,000-dollars per year on weed control throughout the city. Because of harmful-prohibition, by using green alternative pesticides ( i.e. Fiesta, an inferior green alternative herbicide ) foolishly recommended by the province, Steinbach spent upwards of 200,000-dollars per year. That’s well over ten times the cost of what was done with safe & effective conventional products. Who can afford this #@!!% ban nonsense ?!?! Steinbach’s government officials thought this was unacceptable. Organic pesticide-free maintenance with Fiesta was a dismal failure.

Failure Of Futile & Ineffective Integrated Pest Management

Texas

KEY POINTS  ―

IPM Repealed

A Waste Of Time & Money

SUMMARY  ―

A bill submitted to the Texas senate included a provision that would eliminate all requirements for schools to follow IPM. The intent of the bill was to reduce costs to Texas school districts. Clearly, if the program was truly successful, it would receive further support from the government or even the schools themselves. Seemingly, IPM was a waste of time & money. Organic pesticide-free maintenance with IPM was a dismal failure.

Failure Of Medieval & Ineffective Organic Pesticide-Free Maintenance

The Environmental Factor

KEY POINTS  ―

Business Failure With Green Alternative
Pesticides & Organic Lawn Care Franchises

Attempting To Profit From Harmful-Prohibition

SUMMARY  ―

The Environmental Factor, in Ontario, was a company that promoted bogus organic pesticide-free lawn care doctrines with unverifiable success stories. Eventually, The Environmental Factor’s business growth severely declined because demand plummeted for its green alternative pesticides & because several of its organic lawn care franchises fell into bankruptcy. This failed company betrayed the modern professional lawn care industry in order to attempt to profit from the sale of its organic pesticide-free products & services, which were dismal failures.

Failure Of Medieval & Ineffective Organic Pesticide-Free Maintenance

Tukey

KEY POINTS  ―

Inept Failures Of An Anti-Pesticide Extremist

Washington Mall Pesticide Free Lawn Project Failure

SUMMARY  ―

Paul Tukey has been a principal architect in the conspiracy to prohibit against no-risk pest control products used in the urban landscape products that are otherwise safe & effective. It is a fact that harmful-prohibition will lead to catastrophic carnage in the form of business failures & bankruptcy. If your lawn care business was destroyed, it was probably because of Paul Tukey, the destroyer of businesses. Tukey, along with other anti-pesticide extremists, have inflicted apocalypse against the professional lawn care industry.

Predictably, Tukey has been wrong about any success concerning organic pesticide-free maintenance, which has been internationally-recognized by experts as a disastrous failure. This is because he has no competent expertise, no recognized training, & no successful background in matters concerning any form of turf maintenance. Tukey has promoted organic pesticide-free lawn maintenance with fake-news, imaginary stories, & unverifiable successes.

Tukey has chosen to ignore his own inept failure, such as the high-profile Washington Mall, in Washington, DC, USA. As a contractor, Tukey failed to adequately maintain the Washington Mall. Despite the photographic evidence indicating his incompetence ( see below ), he persisted in delivering vague & unverifiable excuses regarding his dismal failure with organic pesticide-free maintenance. In an audio recording, he even blamed the Republican Party for his own incompetence.

Unfortunately, Tukey’s maintenance doctrine has led to catastrophic ecological carnage with uncontrolled & destructive pest problems & disorders. Without the use of no-risk conventional pest control products, Tukey’s anti-pesticide doctrine has forced people to resort to the back-breaking & agonizing job of weed-pulling by hand. Tukey has been proven to be a disgraced & inept failure. His organic pesticide-free practices were dismal failures.

Failure Of Organic Pesticide-Free Teaching

University Of Guelph

KEY POINTS  ―  

Ineffective Manual Weed-Picking Recommended

Why Would Anyone Give Money To This Institution ?

SUMMARY  ―

The University of Guelph, in Ontario, that at one time was the proud learning epicenter of the turfgrass maintenance industry, was reduced to recommending back-breaking hand-weeding as an alternative to no-risk conventional herbicides. The university’s recommendations for organic pesticide-free maintenance meant devaluing the professional labour force of the lawn care industry into a group of cotton-pickers. Its recommendations have been a dismal failure.

University of Guelph has harmed & betrayed thousands & thousands of its graduates who forked over millions & millions of dollars for their education. U of G could not care less about its graduates. Why not suspend all support for U of G’s Guelph Turfgrass Institute & other projects, forever ?!?!

Failure Of Medieval & Ineffective Organic Pesticide-Free Maintenance

Vancouver

KEY POINTS  ―

Catastrophic Ecological Carnage With European
Chafer Insects Decimating Pesticide-Free Lawns

Better To Do Nothing Rather Than Use Nematodes

SUMMARY  ―

The municipal prohibition against no-risk conventional pest control products by the city of Vancouver, British Columbia, has forced residents into using ineffective alternatives, such as flashy tin foil, chicken wire, fake owls, & nematode insecticide. European Chafer insects had devastated at least one-third of all lawns. Damage had been estimated in the millions of-dollars. Green alternative pesticides, like nematode insecticide, & other control options, were bogus practices that did not work. It would have been better to do nothing rather than use these failed nematodes. Organic pesticide-free maintenance with nematodes & others was a dismal failure.

Failure Of Medieval & Ineffective Organic Pesticide-Free Maintenance

Vernon

KEY POINTS  ―

Municipal Employees Had To Resort
To Weed Pulling By Hand Using Hoes

Residents Could Only Expect Green Spaces That
Were Pest-Infested & Dangerous Garbage Dumps

SUMMARY  ―

The people of Vernon, British Columbia, have not forgotten their pesticide ban failures ?!?! They have not forgotten the problem of weeds that surfaced after Coldstream, a part of Greater Vernon, self-imposed prohibition against no-risk conventional pest control products. Without the use of these products, municipal employees had to resort to the back-breaking & agonizing job of weed pulling by hand using hoes. This professional labour force was devalued into a group of mere cotton-pickers. While weed-picking was used initially to control weeds, clearly no professionally-trained municipal employee wanted to continue with this form of manual labour. Organic pesticide-free maintenance with manual weed picking was a dismal failure.

Not surprisingly, Coldstream parks became over-run by weeds, & needed to be totally renovated. Moreover, a baseball diamond had to be completely renovated with re-surfacing & new shale. The regional district of North Okanagan spent 3,000-dollars to bring the baseball diamond up to standard since the weeds left it in an unusable condition for playing safely.

Because of harmful-prohibition, residents in Vernon could only expect green spaces that were pest-infested & dangerous garbage dumps. Vernon’s playing surfaces had become thin & yellow, & over-run with weeds, resulting in the destruction of safe turf playing surfaces. Residents could also expect hazardous slipping & tripping conditions in sports turf, with children becoming seriously hurt. The use of pest control products actually prevents slipping injuries on sports turf. Vernon’s children needed pest-free sports fields to avoid falling & hurting themselves. Organic pesticide-free maintenance represented a danger for children.

Failures Of Harmful-Prohibitions Against No-Risk Conventional Pest Control Products

Victories Against Prohibitions

KEY POINT  ―

Real Trends Against Prohibitions

SUMMARY  ―

Government officials are no longer readily jumping in favour of reckless, arbitrary, & doomed-to-fail prohibitions.

It is clear that pesticide-hating extremists conspire to impose harmful-prohibitions in order to destroy our urban green space environments, such as playing surfaces used by children.

Unfortunately, it is impossible to keep playing surfaces well-maintained, safe, & attractive without no-risk conventional pest control products.

Without these products, playing surfaces are destroyed  ―  they become thin & yellow, invaded by weeds, & infested with insects.

With prohibitions, the safety & appearance of playing surfaces are jeopardized with ecological disasters from uncontrolled & dangerous insects like white grubs, & from invasive & dangerous weeds like dandelions.

With weed invasions & insect infestations, safe turf playing surfaces are destroyed  ―  children are at high-risk of slipping & tripping & becoming seriously hurt.

In essence, pest control products prevent harm & keep children safe from injuries.

There are over sixty jurisdictions that have stopped or rescinded or limited or have begun to repeal harmful-prohibitions, or have granted commercial businesses with an exception status.

Failure Of Medieval & Ineffective Organic Pesticide-Free Maintenance

Wallingford

KEY POINTS  ―

Children Are In Danger Because Prohibition Attracts Bees

Manual Weed Picking Ineffective

SUMMARY  ―

In jurisdictions like Wallingford, Connecticut, USA, there is a fear of litigation with pesticide-free school properties which have been infested with weeds, like clover & dandelion, that have been attracting bees. What if children get stung & what if they are allergic to bees ?!?! Clover attracts bees that can harm children & kill people. Clover attracts killer bees. For people who are allergic to bee stings, dangerous anaphylactic reaction may be triggered & may be potentially deadly. Additionally, bee stings will release pheromones that prompt other nearby bees to attack. Consequently, no one wants this #@!!% dangerous ban nonsense that places their children at risk. Municipal employees have attempted to control these weeds with string trimmers & manual weed picking, which do not work. Organic pesticide-free maintenance with weed picking & trimmers was a dismal failure.
