California’s Fumigation and Quarantine Policy
Anthony Gregory • Monday, May 19, 2008
The state Department of Food and Agriculture is currently being slowed down in its policy of spraying Santa Cruz, Monterey, Sonoma and other parts of the state to battle the brown apple moth. It has already quarantined a part of Sonoma. And, “Although people reportedly got sick last year in Monterey and Santa Cruz counties because of the aerial spraying, it seems this is the only viable solution to terminate the moths.”
You gotta love the state. Whether to kill moths or to save moths, the state puts mere man in his place.
