    Is it just me or is it that time of year? I am getting asked 2-3 times per day if I am concerned about my health and the products I am applying. I tell everyone that the products I am applying have been approved by the EPA and have been through a series of tests and I follow all the safety guidelines on the label. I then proceed to show them all my Personal Protection Equipment, but they are still not satisfied. I had one girl last week tell me that her dog just died of a tumor in his nose that he got from sniffing lawn chemicals, I just told her I was sorry to hear about her loss, but I wanted to ask her if she had actually had an autopsy done to prove this claim. I know you all go through this from time to time, just wondering how others handled these situations?

    Check out www.pestfacts.com for good info you can pass along. Critics of pesticides usually are repeating what they have heard or read. Good, truthful info like what is found on pestfacts is the best way to educate. Neal
