EPA versus Bed Bugs
I'm finally convinced that the EPA must be part of the bed bug conspiracy that is spreading across the USA in epidemic proportions. In a consumer alert presented today by the EPA they stated that pesticides should be limited and even went to far as to say, "Prevention and non-chemical treatment of infestations is the best way to avoid or eliminate a bedbug problem." Talk about being disconnected from reality. Non-Chemical treatment would indicate using heat or fumigation, both which are extremely effective, but enormously expensive. Prevention would indicate moving to a deserted island until the EPA approves and exemption or lightens up on regulating the chemical manufactures to allow for them to come out with some new chemistry. What I say to that is get used to eating coconuts! The EPA needs to start to realize that this is a real problem effecting the mental health and pocket books of people across the country. The reason people are over-using chemicals is because the chemicals the EPA has approved for bed bug control are not working as effectively as they should because the bed bugs are showing such a strong immunity. Can I get an Amen!
