I agree about handling rodents safely.It was9yrs ago my children were getting sick every 2 weeks, stomache,headaches ,at the time one was 14 yrs old female my son 7yrs old.Tuesday every other week,I asked the school nurse for the schedule of spraying that was going on.Her reply what spraying?She contacted me later that week with a list of chemicals that made my stomache sick.
Every other Friday Chemtech would spray inside the school close windows and hope they killed the sugar ants,mice flys ect..I then received Oshas (mispelled) report side effects dizziness diahrea nervous system disorder,I spoke to mothers they were not concerned,but the worst episode occured when my daughter was trying out for basketball,it was a Sunday they had been doing construction and 5 girls started to vomit clear vomit within 5 mins of doing windsprints. No one thought anything of it.I called the cheif engineer asked him what was going on in gym 2,oh we had put down rat pellets very poisonous the coach should have been notified it could have been from the poison.
Long story short 2 children sick for many years,many things caused there illnesses,what could have been prevented was proper and state regulations back than on chemicals in schools.
When my son got very sick I asked to see the list in his new school,2 engineers met me put me in a room with a binder of about 500 hundred pages.Are you going to sue?They asked me I said what the heck is being put down in this school,we have knew products but old inventory.Please the children in every district are being exposed to chemicals because of long term contracts.What a shame,scam when in the 1920-50s white vineger was the best and cheapest cleaning agent.Now people ,parents, and young adults are so much more aware. Keep up the work for the safety of these kids.Thank You,
Rita Driscoll

We have a good landscape company that makes sure the plants don’t become overgown and the association has professionals come out when any pest problems do come up. So we are not bothered by ants, termites, rodents and such. But when I lived with my other in a single familjy house in Orange, we had stray cats from a stray cat coloney along the Santa Ana River not far from our house, lots of possums, raccoons, and tree rats as well as gophers and moles. We wound up having most of the landscape taken out and much of it replaced by concrete walks and Orange County Animal Control trapped many of the stray cats and possums but we had a pest problem to a greater or lesser extent until my mother passed away and I moved to Mission Viejo. Best wishes, Michael E. Bailey.

Your pseudo-intellectual rant showcases your immense vocabulary(!) This indicates that your experience with women is lacking. To call this blog post “sexist” vacuous. In the words of the great philosopher Michael Jackson, “That’s just ignorant!”

By: Rachel Sat, 31 Oct 2009 16:24:23 +0000 We had a mouse problem in our very nice townhouse in college and yes, women (girls call us whatever you want) will scream and jump up on a table when a mouse runs through the house. I have even know guys to do the same…no one likes unwanted pets (pests).

We as a family have had mouse issues in different states in very nice houses as well. This article is very correct that the problem needs to be addressed (we usually call in my sister, the great mouse catcher to do the work) and eliminate the mouse or you will end up with many more that will destroy your house!

By: Johnny R. Thu, 29 Oct 2009 12:50:14 +0000 It’s hard to believe this article was written by a woman, loaded with sexist hyperbole as it is. No rational person could believe that three students jumped up on a table and screamed at the sight of a mouse (!) This whole website looks like a hangover from the 8 years of Bush revanchism.

Green starts inside, where we are locating ourselves most, and bring it onto the atmosphere climatic.
