    Money has been coming down the pipeline for mosquito control in my county due to the inaccurate media coverage of WestNile. Where there is money they will spray, and the bees will die. stop it at the source. Petition is a good start. done and done

    As I stated above, I've sent it and forwarded it to my email address book and posted it on the HGTV Garden Message Board. Some of the HGTV members have sent their signed petitions in, but someone has questioned the petition's validity since it appears to be over a year old. Does anyone have an answer I can give any "doubting Thomases"? You can see for yourself at http://boards.hgtv.com/eve/ubb.x?a=t...2&m=9821028881

    The answer is simple. This re-approval of Carbaryl is an effort
    that has taken well over a year. The petition has been around
    for that long, and has been submitted at every "comments" stage
    built into the process, each time with as many signatures as
    were "current" at that time.

    The funny thing is those "doubting Thomases" could have sent the email for the petition with as much ease as they questioned it.

    It either is expired. Or it isn't expired. If it IS expired you haven't hurt anything with your email. If it isn't expired you may play a part in saving the lives of millions or even billions of bees.

    I guess it seems like a no-brainer to me.

    Michael, that's the way I see it too, but the poster is insisting our petition is invalid; hence, no other members at the gardening site are signing it either! I'd given the poster this site to check out what we're talking about and the response was,
    "I've looked at that, Tia, and the dates referenced on the dockets are all 2003 something. There is document for 2004 out there, but what you have referenced is the 2003 which won't get anything done since it is closed".
    I'm posting your response on the garden website for KimmSR to read~~I just got so miffed at the headstrong attitude, I didn't know how to answer, so I thought I'd use your post. Hope you don't mind.

    I don't mind, but I'd throw in Jim Fishcer's comments about the dates as well, because that seems to be what they WANT to hear, which is why is it still valid.

    Done . This was my message:

    Please add me to this petition list.
    I am a beekeeper in Guatemala, Central America, and it is of utmost importance that pesticides are correctly labeled. Bee losses due to misuse of pesticides are comparable to livestock loss. I doubt very much that cattle owners would stand still and silence watching their herds die off from some neighbour´s spray. So why should bee owners not stand up to our rights?

    Michael, I posted Jim Fischer's quotes previous to posting yours. Didn't seem to make much difference though. . .

    Some people just want to find fault with everything. I don't understand why, but they seem to congregate on the internet.

    Thanks to all who "signed" the petition,
    and extra thanks to Barry who sent out a
    mass mailing during the holiday crunch.

    The EPA is under no obligation to take
    "citizen comments" into account, and has
    a habit of publishing a proposed rule,
    going through the comment process, and
    then doing exactly as it pleases.

    I'd rant and rave about this, but I made
    the mistake of turning on the TV yesterday.
