    we should ttalreoe bed bugs and not use pesticides, but respected scientists and aothers say that we should not return to pesticides that pose risk to people and especially to children. So we get rid of the bed bugs, but we make children suffer for that. I am presenting a well argued perspective here and i shoiuld have the privilege of calling nonsense as it is .. nonsense.. Perhaps i am wasting my time .. but i thought that this was a place to present best practices. We have people ;like Rich arguing against IPM .. |I never viewed IPM as a pollitical thing bvecause what it is was always very clear to me and i have pracdticed it for nearly 30 years with great satisfaction at every success and every time it meant less pesticides. but hwne i hear people politicizing IPM and making it seem as if it is an anti-pesticide ideology.. it frustrates me to no end. IPM is not anti-pesticide. it is based on common sense and on best use of pesticides when needed if that doesn’t make sense, well, perhaps I have to leave this excellent blog and stop comments altogether. there is so much here that is part of what IPM is really about and in that it shares the logic and common sense of the IPM concept.. But now and then we get this kind of ridiculous stance and i think it deserves response.. Debate is part of democracy and comments about opposing positions when based on well grounded facts can be framed in sarcasm and humour and example. And when there is stupidity, well, it needs to be identified for what it is tune in on your own congresional or senatorial debates or British or Canadian parliamentary question periods I take my lumps when i am wrong if you wnat to make NYvsBedBugs, IPM clean that is your choice Renee.. I ike your site, but i don’t need to hear this kind of stuff wihtout responding, so i can just not hear it at all if that’s what it takes. I think it diminshes your site if it is unanswered.
