AVOID weed killers !!!!

By
Real Estate Agent with Charles Rutenberg Realty NAR 274504721

Hey, this is 2007! We are ALL supposed to know about the environmental effects of using things like weed killers! So imagine my shock and dismay when I overheard a colleague talking about getting a group of friends together to clean up the front of a listed home and clean it by using WEED KILLER!!!

If they had said they wanted to pull the weeds, I would have jumped onto the band wagon! But WEED KILLER??? No way! I had to jump into the conversation and ask if they had considered the environmental consequences of using weed killer? Did they realize that it ends up in the aquifer? Do they know that it is a ROOT KILLER and does not differentiate between different kinds of roots? Have they never seen 'weeds' with beautiful blossoms???

Needless to say, I was not the most popular person in the group - called the 'party pooper' - Well, given the options, it is a title I willingly accept!

Before you use chemicals think of the long term consequences on our environment!

B&BJ, did you know that we still manufacture DDT and export it to poor countries like those in Africa?  Its not against the law to  make and export that stuff, apparently their environment is not as important as ours.

If there is such a big job to do they should just pull the weeds like the rest of us. weed killers are not meant to be used in large doses in vast areas and they have bad consequences. I would hate to be these peoples neighbors! Sounds as if these weed killers are going "over-kill"!

Terry - Yes, I did know that! It is amazing how we are willing to pass this trash on to third world nations!

Shellee - I could not agree more! Good old pulling out with the root system is all that is needed!

Yes indeed, especially when they will be right back if you don't get the root structure!
