The bottom line is not to protect you or your environment. The bottom line is just that, and as a beekeeper and agriculturalist I know for a fact that there are better and more cost-effective methods for controlling malevolent insects. I am still trying to figure out how to apply this to controlling the fools who are running roughshod in the offices of the city halls whose decisions, made without our collective input, invade our sanity and choices of healthy living. Our environment is polluted enough by past stupidities. Stupidity only makes your threat stronger.
We all know how important honeybees are — there can be no question. What must be questioned is the lack of empirical thought and the intellect of those who condone such irresponsible undertakings, such as pesticide spraying our living space with the misguided belief that this will somehow eradicate one problem, which may in reality create a larger problem in the future.
