I was very distraught a couple of nights ago(Reading an article on pesticides made me think about it again.) I heard a buzzing noise outside on the street. A noise that I’ve heard before, but never bothered to look out of my window. When I looked out to actually see, I saw a truck driving down our street, blowing out bursts of fog. I can only assume that it was insecticide/pesticides of some sort. The fogs were coming down on our yards and houses. I vaguely remember someone talking about how they had sprayed for mosquitos before we moved in a year ago.
It made me sick to my stomach that I was probably going to be breathing in air that was loaded with this junk for the next few hours against my will. And not just about me, we have a lady laden with cancer, and many children who live on this street. I was never notified about them(I’m guessing it was the township)going to do this. I really believe that this should be illegal. I am being forced to inhale substances that jeopardize my health against my will. It makes me really sad that people are so selfish as to not care about how it would affect other people.
I guess I’m mostly just venting. I know probably nobody else really cares about such things on my street. Even the lady with cancer puts chemicals on her yard to keep it green. But I guess I just feel its totally unfair that I had no choice about this. I guess I could write a letter to the township, but I’m guessing it really wouldn’t help. Argh!
