    Agreed, turns out, I’m slightly allergic to some pesticides with headaches that put me out of commission for hours. There must be a safer eco/environmental way to deal with pests. Although humans are by far away the biggest pests compared to insects and animals. I’m for mandatory radon testing on rentals as well. Good luck.

    I don’t think all pesticides are toxic to humans. I think the campaign should read “Ban Toxic Pesticides.”

    A pesticide ban is exactly what we need. That stuff is just too dangerous. Well actually only the toxic one. There are alternatives to pesticide which are not dangerous.
