The California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA) has announced plans to resume aerial pesticide spraying for the Light Brown Apple Moth (LBAM) in summer 2008.
Despite massive local public opposition, the multi-million dollar campaign began in 2007 in Santa Cruz and Monterey counties using a synthetic pheromone along with other chemicals encased in microscopic plastic capsules.
Ignoring widespread reports of serious human health effects, as well as damage to marine life and bees, CDFA will expand the program to the San Francisco Bay Area beginning in Summer, 2008, with plans to continue spraying each month for 3 - 5 years or indefinitely until the moth is 'eradicated.'
On Moday. March 3, 2008 a Marin Town Hall Meeting was held at the Corte Madera Town Center hosted by the Marin Pesticide Free Zone Campaign, and organized by Frank Egger, Marin Coordinator of StopTheSprayMarin.org.
Here is Part 1 of that meeting: Panel Higlights.
