Anyway.... the cover letter that was attached to the info that I received in the mail read... "Attention licensed applicator... please help protect our ground water... apply only the labeled rate...bla,bla,bla" Like that's going to fix our ground water contamination. Interesting, all those state applicator point meetings I attend that are Monsanto funded...all we get told is pesticides are "safe-safe-safe-safe-safe" when all the label directions are followed correctly. When will it end? :angry:

Hey Brandon, maybe the last poster really thinks pesticides are safe if used as the lable states?...........Maybe he attended the same "Big LCO" safety meeting I did ,that said asprin & caffine were worse than those "Healthy Pesticides" he was going to apply?....... :dizzy: :waving: lol,lol,lol.

Yah-That's right. Now Idaho water can be added to the lethal dose chart!!! This 5 gallon pale of sodium methyldithiocarbamate is safer than a glass of Idaho water....No wait, I have one better...Idaho water can now be sold as a soil fumigant, fungicide, pre&post herbicide, and a alllivingthingcide...I'm putting together a business plan right now!!!

Label it organic and I am sure it will sell.

Tell that to one of the kids from rural S.E. Idaho who was born malformed!
