Letting the bed bugs bite
Who would let the bed bugs bite? The feds of course.
If you are looking for a reason to support the Tenth Amendment movement, turn a bedsheet or two in Ohio.
Seems the EPA no longer allows the pesticide Propoxur to be sold for home use. Why?
Is Propoxur unsafe? Hardly, Propoxur is "a decades-old pesticide that many see as the best, and cheapest, way to stop the voracious bugs."
What changed? According to Andrew Christman, owner of the Ohio Exterminating Co. and president of the Ohio Pest Management Association, "Propoxur had long been labeled for use in homes. It lost that status last year because the manufacturer had declined to pay to re-test and re-register the product."
So the manufacturer decides that the cost for federal testing and registration is too high and now "[m]any low-income families and elderly residents repeatedly suffer from bites because they cannot afford extermination, which generally costs between $200 and $500 per application."
Remind me, who does government benefit?
