2/24/2004: Pesticide spraying in Java
Happy Monkey Tuesday Feb 24 03:57 PM
Violation of rights? The whole DC area is sprayed for mosquitos/caterpillars, etc most summers. Pesticides fill the air in any farming area. The victim of a termite infestation (or their insurance) must have an exterminator over, or risk lawsuits from neighbors.

Hell, that's what I'm like when I see one little cockroach in my place, I spray it to death (until it's all white a foamy) then squash it before it runs away, I'm satisfied then.

Sydney is inundated with these horrible little critters. I just keep spraying and doing my bit for the ozone. I only have little ones, (not many but enough to make me puke). Some people have the huge flying ones the size if a hand.

Actually, DDT is a benefactor of all humanity. It's just bad for the coastal birds like the Bald Eagle. DDT is a great way to stop hundreds of thousands of people dying from malaria each year. It doesn't harm humans (when used properly.) Don't misunderstand, I'm glad it was banned. It is pretty harmful to sea birds. But it was great for humans.

Just shore birds??
Does a number on important microorganisms too, like algae and plankton.

That looks like a real gas.

Microsoft should learn how to debug from these guys.

I've got a fogger like that one. We use it for photo shoots in outdoor areas that need a lot of fog. It uses some kind of 2 cycle engine that superheats the fogger juice and probels it out. It's REAL LOUD but it puts out a lot of fog. We don't use insecticide but some kind of non lethal fog juice from Hollywood.

That's not a bug. It's an undocumented feature!

I'm in Utah. I have 44 ounces of caffienated love on my desk. I agree though...Brazil sounds pretty damn amazing. Has anyone been to "Fiesta" in San Antonio? I'm heading down there for business in April during Fiesta...just curious if I need to pack some bead necklaces...

40 years ago the cockroaches in Boston were very genteel. If you turned on a light they would excuse themselves and retire to inside the walls.

Yes, Bruce. I am shocked - SHOCKED, I tell you - that you would stoop to such an insensitive joke. This is supposed to be a family board!

Week? Today? Damn, I'll never get this mourning coat off.

All kidding aside. Here in the great state of SC, we have fire ants. Supposedly they have a pesticide that'll work. So Clemson U has said. But because they cover 5-6 southern states. It would have to done all at the same time.
