Who OK's this stuff?

Do they do studies to find out the ecological effects?

I would imagine it to kill all insects.

In this case it would seem to be Dorchester County.

Good ol' home rule.

I'm sure mosquitos live in more places than moist ditches on the sides of the road. It just seems like a small act.


Wherever there is water they breed

Come on, guys.....the honeybees are dying....sacrificing themselves for the Zika scare!!!

At this time....they really don't know the extent of the damage.

The toll last week’s spraying has taken on honeybees is still being tabulated. According to one estimate reported by The Washington Post, 2.5 million bees at a single apiary, called Flowerton Bee Farm and Supply, died immediately following the application of the pesticide. The spray has devastated numerous other beekeeping businesses.

....... beekeepers argue that they were unaware of the plan to spray.

Many are now wondering what’s in store for the bees that survived the toxic exposure. Jennifer Holmes, vice-president of the Florida State Beekeepers Association and the co-owner of a company with about 300 colonies north of West Palm Beach told The Guardian that beekeepers fear “not just the immediate die-offs, but possible genetic die-offs or sterility.”

This really is a pathetic occurrence. Hysteria coupled with overreaction where the byproduct is an even worse situation than the conflated Zika scare.

No worries, the sarcasm is now duly noted.

Oh my, genetic mutations and sterility? As if the
poor little buggers don't already have enough on
their survival agenda!



I'll have to look into that, the chemical that was used is Trumpet.

The Trumpet insecticide used in this spray contains Naled.

Here is fact sheet on the dangers to honey bees.

nospray.org...

It is a broad spectrum insecticide, which means it
will affect birds, other pollinators, fish, and other
aquatic life such as oysters, and sea urchins.

What is really a crime, this spray was done in the morning
when bees are out pollinating and feeding.

Here's the product flyer,

www.amvac-chemical.com...

Id like to see in the investigation, (I sure hope there is), of the flight routes, times, and locations of the spray to see if there are potential other places where this spray was dispersed.

Off target spraying is illegal as heck according to my research.

Also when the last time the aircraft was State inspected, Pilot qualifications, company qualifications, dispersal equipment calibration results, and certificates using this product.

Yes I can verify this!
I live just minutes away from where this happened. So terrible.
Anyway, yes they spray our Neighborhood at dusk. Many kids are still outside with their families, many people out walking their dogsite etc. I am mortified by the spraying at such busy times in the lives of most families.
We've had colds now for a little over a week.

It is utterly disgusting negligence. Indifference and ignorance.

The spray for the Zika mosquitoes has killed millions of honeybees too......

Just driving past --- I'll check beyond the OP tomorrow...
but, S/F

in a mad, sad, "boo!" way.

It would seen that these would all be legal requirements.

There was an exception to spray due to an "extreme health emergency"
but they would still be required to follow the laws.

I don't think they meant to intentionally kill all those bees....but I do think the careless disregard is almost as bad as intentionally killing them.

And I do think there should be compensation to the beekeepers...and not at taxpayer expense.

We really need to stop the mass hysteria about zika, and ebola...and whatever comes our way.
The media needs to become informational...not a vehicle for the hype.


Maybe. If accidental, that shows a frightening level of incompetence. I agree, whoever is responsible should be financially responsible as well.

The hype and hysteria are, I definitely believe, intentional. Fear is a powerful tool for control.
