Does anyone live in Monterey or Santa Cruz counties where the neighborhoods are being involuntarily sprayed with pesticides at night?!?
This is crazy!

This is really a terrible thing. Residents are being sprayed with a pesticide.
Even the organic food crops and the water are being sprayed too. This is a phermone being sprayed that also has many other compounds including plastics. This is unreal, how can this actually happen. Very scary. There were lawsuits filled against the spray, but were all shot down. And people out of the area don't even seem to know about it. You can read about it here:
scroll down and read the blog as well. The city council were on the streets of downtown handing out face masks, but they have a permit to keep spraying!!!

I will definitely make sure any of the produce I'm buying is not coming from these areas (which, by the way is a HUGE agriculture area including many greens sold in our supermarkets)!
Even the organic crops are getting sprayed with this pesticide concoction containg plastics!
When you are buying your veggies at the store, check to see if they're from this area!
Anyone know the names of these farms/companies? I know they sell a lot of the bagged lettuces and spinach. I think one is called fresh express, maybe.

This is so terrible I feel so bad for the people who live there :(

How do the people there keep from breathing in the pesticides ?

When you get to the election polls you may want to consider changing the local leadership that would allow such an offense to occur.

Just a word of caution, wherever you live,
make sure the produce you are buying in your grocery stores is not from farms in this area (Watsonville, Salinas, Monterey, Santa Cruz).
Even if it is labled organic, it HAS been sprayed with this pesticide and these toxins. So, just beware.
So sad. :(
The local grocery stores in Santa Cruz said they will be trying to buy produce from out of the area for now on and are considering putting produce from this area now in another section of the store because it's been sprayed on, but is still labled organic. But, stores outside of this area probably won't go to the extra effort of separating this for you, so you must educate yourself!
