I've always been scared to come across something like this, but thank God I haven't yet.

I've come up on people passed out, engaged in 'acts', and some other strange things though.

Man Defends Bee Colonies with Natural Pest Control

What a great endeavor this gentleman has felt called to do. Saving the bees with nematodes from beetle predators. There are some really interesting points that I never knew of in this article. I did not know that sick bees will not go back to the colony. Also, this article suggest that beekeepers use pesticides somehow in the colony to control bee predators. In my opinion, this raises some questions about the Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD) problem that we hear of so often.

Meantime, I hope this man makes a lot of money and can stay in business.
PERRY -- The small plastic bag Phillip Tedders holds contains as many living creatures as there are people in Georgia.

Really good share! The article does suggest beekeepers use pesticides to control the beetles.

I'm a little embarrassed. This man lives within 15 miles of me and I had no idea of his business :(

When The Nitrogen Hits The Fan

Florida's turf fertilization program is a big mess. Finally someone has put their foot down about how IT's going to work (like it or not). I guarantee there is going to be a war about this ruling though.

FLORIDA DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE AND CONSUMER SERVICES
COMMISSIONER ADAM H. PUTNAM
What You Should Know About Recent Changes
to the Urban Turf Fertilizer Rule
On January 8, 2015 The Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services adopted
changes to the statewide Urban Turf Fertilizer Rule SE-1.003 F.A.C. The changes were in
response to the culmination of 8 years of turf research conducted by the University of Florida,
Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences turf scientists. This research was funded by the
Florida Department of Environmental Protection.
What are the notable changes to the Urban Turf Rule?
• Addition of the term "Actively Growing Turf"
Research demonstrated that timing of fertilizer applications is a key factor when
examining nutrient losses to the environment. Fertilizer should only be applied when
turf is actively growing.
• Increased nitrogen application rate to 2 pounds per 1000 sq. ft. in the spring and
summer.
• Limits nitrogen applications to 1 pound total nitrogen per 1000 sq. ft. during the fall or
winter.
• If a total controlled release form of nitrogen is applied, not more than 35 percent of the
nitrogen in the controlled release fertilizer can be released within the first 7 days after
application.
• Modification to the nitrogen application recommendations in the "Annual Fertilization
Guidelines"
• Recommendation to only apply to actively growing turf.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~-
~ ~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~-
1 -800 -HELP FL A F16ftda. www.FreshFromFlorida.com o No application of nitrogen in the winter months in North Florida.
o Limits nitrogen applications rates to 1 pound per application in the fall and
winter months is central and south Florida.
o Reduced the maximum annual pounds of nitrogen for Zoysia grass.
• Included the following statements in the required precautionary language -
o "Apply only to actively growing turf"
• "Check with your local Cooperative Extension Agency to obtain specific information on
local turf best management practices"
o "Check with your county or city government to determine if there are local
regulations for fertilizer use"
• "Maximum" is no longer required for the coverage area statement on the front of the
bag. Now coverage area will suffice e.g. (This bag covers 4000 sq. ft.)
• Existing stock clause, licensees are granted 18 months to make the necessary label
modifications.
The complete rule can be accessed at "link will be provided once published".

Restaurant Owner Saves Roaches Lives On Moral Grounds

Awe, poor little disease carrying, virus spreading, asthma carrying roach. I do not want to exterminate you because I don't like "killing little insects". It is okay, my customers do not mind being exposed to these hazards as they eat their healthy, all natural, vegetarian food in my restaurant.

Yeah right, the "kind hearted" owner hired a pest control company after getting a $16,000.00 fine. Personally, I think he should start a non-profit, "Save The Roach" agency if is his true intention is be so benevolent. He could start at his own restaurant; collecting roaches, moving them to roach preserves where they will be safe from the exterminator . Maybe the new owner of his restaurant will give him a donation for collecting these poor little roaches. :-)

Pesticides Linked to ADHD

Here is test on pyrethrins/pyrethroids that says it causes ADHD. Increased awareness of these disorders is interesting in my opinion. Ultimately, if it leads to constructive solutions it would be okay, but I believe that in a lot of cases it just causes more social disorder rather than discussion. We should have more studies on "social disorder". What do you think?
ADHD risk factor includes exposure to common household pesticides, according to a recent study. Pregnant women and young children are more susceptible.

My old coworker and were filling out our pesticide records at the end of one day... He made a mistake calculating the application rate. I pointed out I did the same thing before. We looked back at the records. Even an x-employee from years back did it. The numbers were all really off too. It was like "5 ×1.3= 836". So we concluded bifenthrin acutely ruins one's ability to do simple math. So i can definitely agree that pyrethins cause ADD.
