It seems as if there are many people that wish to stop the "pollution" of land with chemicals. I say that most products, used within reason, are not bad. The problem we are facing these days is the over use and misuse of products. Anything in too much volume is bad, yes even water. There are many people that are misusing lawn products without really paying attention. Many people on this site have seen these situations on a daily basis. Homeowners using Round-Up on Crabgrass, or pouring undiluted products into a spray can and spraying the weeds. Most of the time people just don't read the label. The other issue to selling control products "over the counter" is the "Lawn Guy" who is looking to make an extra buck. This is one of the biggest offenders and the biggest problems. These guys think that just because it is sold at the local hardware store anybody can buy it and spray it anywhere. Yes anyone can buy them but it is meant for your own use. It is similar to "over the counter" drugs. Just because you can buy Tylenol does not mean you can go to someones house, give them the medication, and call yourself a doctor. There have been many lawn chemicals that have been removed from the market place for various reasons, some of them being over use. Some products have been removed, like Sudafed, because people were misusing them. You now have to ask permission from behind the counter, similar to most (if not all) states requiring a license to purchase more than one quart of 2,4-D. We lost MSMA here recently. Why can we not use it as a restricted use-licensed applicator only product. I know that this sounds pretty controlling, and almost a bad governmental idea. I feel that we need to educate everyone on the uses of these products before they are misused and removed from the market. Everyone has to have a drivers license to get behind the wheel of a motor vehicle, why can't we do the same for lawn care products? In the words of Bill O'Reilly, What say you?
