    There they go again.

    The county spraying malathion in the air.

    It kills the leaves, and any flying insect, not to mention spiders, and other bugs.

    And they wonder "GEE I WONDER WHY WE DONT HAVE ANY BEES"

    "Oh....its not harmful"

    Bull Shit too.

    Here's a link... This is just one of MANY sites
    Malathion Health Research

    You need bees to pollinate food crops.
    What the fuck are they thinking.

    We use malathion in our cotton fields. It doesnt hurt the cotton or the trees. I agree we need more bees.

    I had a good friend whom I took to the ER several years ago with symptoms of a stroke.

    It took them several days to find that his slurred speech and physical weakness had been caused by Malathion, which he'd used to spray a fruit tree.

    Yes it is poison. You have to have a licenses to use chemicals. Some stuff we use can kill you with just one drop.

    that's funny...
    here in Southern California, they spray malathion to keep down the fruit flies every once in a great while...

    And every time there is a hue and a cry from the public about all the deleterious effects.... " how DARE you EXPOSE us to this CHEMICAL!?" they shout....


    And then... they stopped for a while.... and that summer....

    3 kids and an adult in Del Mar came down with Malaria...


    WHERE THE HELL IS THE MALATHION!? they screamed...



    RELAX folks.... human beings are living longer and healthier lives than ever before in history.

    If you think you have it tough...
    READ some history.
