Last night while watching the local news on WHIOTV, I had caught a "snip-it" of a report that said a local county would soon begin aerial spraying for Gypsy Moths? I had went to the news station's web site to get the scoop, but could not find it anywhere. So again this morning it came on the news & was able to find out that it is going to happen in Logan county, & claims that this chemical is SAFE for humans & other animals? Not being able to find anything on any local news channels, or any current stories in the news papers. I decided to really dig & am disgusted by what I have found!! According to the Ohio Dept of Ag. This cocktail is a combo of Virus/bacterium/sexual pheromones/& chemical insecticides???

I was able to find articles where the media admits that the State of Ohio has been spraying us with this stuff for at least 2 years. They always say this stuff is totally safe, but I have found a few articles like this one that states:
" Btk had caused health reactions in previously sprayed areas, including: “..skin rash and
other immune, allergic and sensitization responses such as dry, itchy skin; red, burning
eyes; dry sore throat; cough and tightness in the chest..” (SES 2003)
• children particularly at risk from the effects of Btk. “With smaller weight, and developing
systems, children are likely to be more susceptible for all potential health effects.” (SES
2003)
• Btk is respirable in mammals, so there is the possibility of lung injury on exposure (SES
2003) • repeated exposure via inhalation can result in sensitization and allergic response (stated
on product label). Continue reading here http://www.lbamspray.com/Reports/Bacillu...031208.pdf

This next article admits that it "Confuses" Males?? http://daytoninformer.com/?p=795
The State is holding some kind of meeting for this, but I am having problems nailing down time & place so I can go in there & raise 10 kinds of hell with these ppl!! Are any of you guys having the same problems in your local areas?

**** EDIT: once you click on the agri ohio.gov, you can find the Info about the chemicals in the side bar under "Treatment Info"****
