Illegal mosquito spraying


UNBELIEVABE.  I have been in the pest industry for over 45 years and I have never seen anything like this.  I mentioned last week about some mosquito spraying in Utah that was not good.  I just got a letter from the person who contacted me and what he said is beyond belief.  I do believe it and will follow up.  The person said he can send me any documented proof I need.  The sprayers don’t follow federal, state, county or city laws and the sprayers brother is the mayor of the town involved.  They completely and purposely ignore all laws and increase the amount of pesticide used every year.   The sprayer and his wife own a spraying company and he even has his children spraying the pesticides while driving erratically.  They spray the sides of homes and even spray some people.  The pest control sprayer has lied under oath and the person who contacted me can prove it.   All past and present city and county officials have endorsed, aided and abetted the sprayers and financially backed them up.  The EPA tried to cover this up but that is expected from the Trump EPA. The plaintiff sent me a list of the pesticides that are used and the names of all the officials involved in this.  I sent this information to an attorney in NM who told me he may be interested in this.  I told him about this before I got all this information.  This is going to be huge.  There are dozens of people in the town who are sick and I see a class action lawsuit here and I am going to suggest it be filed in federal court.  I don’t think the state of Utah wants to deal with his.  I won’t mention the name of people or places yet as I don’t want to do anything to stop this from going forward.  I did tell the attorney that I would be happy to work with him on this and I will go to Utah if necessary to work on it.  I will post any relevant information on this that I can and what the attorney says.  If he doesn’t want the case I am sure I can find someone who will.  This will be as big as the Monsanto case in California.  I will keep you posted as this can happen anywhere, even in New Mexico.  Having unlicensed children spraying pesticides for mosquitoes is UNBELIEVABLE.





About askthebugman

I have been in the pest management industry for over 40 years. In that time I have used almost every pesticide available to control so-called “pests”. With this experience, I have learned over the years that the pesticides we use are far more dangerous than the pests we are trying to control. As a result, it has become a passion for me to improve the quality of life for humans and the planet, by assisting people to not only become more educated and aware of their environment – but also by learning to manage their home and business with a sustainable and healthier approach to tending to unwanted infestations of bugs. Please enjoy my blog posts, check out my publications, utilize my services, or simply stay in touch if you have a bug question…
