Spray Your Kids with Pesticides?

Posted by Len Gilbert on April 15, 2008

Now is a great time to take action on the state’s plan to spray for the light brown apple moth. The spraying over Piedmont would begin right as our children return to school in late August.

Please come to the Piedmont City Council meeting on Monday, April 21st, 7:30pm to let the council know how you feel and urge them to adopt a resolution against spraying over Piedmont.

On April 15th the SF Chronicle published an article “Moms mobilize to stop spraying” that has some great information about the issue. Also, don’t miss the opinion piece on simple reasons that the state should not spray urban areas. You can also learn more by visiting the California Alliance to Stop the Spray or Stop the Spray. Piedmont also has an apple moth page on its city website.

Please come to the meeting or contact your council members.
