We are in trouble. The OC Vector Control wants to aerially spray our homes, parks, schools and churches with a pesticide that is a known endocrine disruptor, which will mean health complications for over 3 million people, increased cancer, lymphoma, Parkinson’s disease, birth defects and Alzheimer’s.
The pesticide will kill the pollinators as one of the main ingredients is sumithrin. Our air and water will be poisoned. Can you please help and sign this petition to stop this ASAP? https://www.change.org/p/help-us-stop-aerial-spraying-of-pesticides-by-orange-county-vector-control
It is especially harmful to our developing children – pregnant women and babies. Can you reach out to our City Counsel and ask them to help stop this?
There is a Facebook group online called, “Stop the Spraying.” You can join for updates.
The mosquito risk is so low right now and this should be a last resort not a first resort. The worst case scenario projected by OCVCD that they will spray to make sure five people do not get ill with a mosquito borne illness. By these hypothetical five people not becoming ill over 3 million people will have their health compromised.
OCVCD has failed to share the most important fact: we all need to check our back yards weekly for standing water and dump it. Look at the bottom of plant saucers in the yard also.
If you have any questions, we have gone to all the meetings and have much research that has been presented as far as the ill health effects to us by doctors in our community.
