  1. I wanted to thank you for the pesticide information you have put together on your web page: …The other morning I found a hurt owl in my yard, rolling around on the ground. I called animal control and once they took the owl, they called me about a day later to let me know the owl had suffered from pesticide poisoning. (I was so sad!) After finding out what happened to the beautiful creature, and seeing first hand how dangerous these pesticides really are, I was pretty scared. I decided to go on line and look up some information to make a guide for my students/faculty in hopes to educate others. (I have since thrown out anything in my garage that contains toxic ingredients!)

    Your page led me to some helpful information on pesticide poisoning. I had also found this page ( that covers all the negative aspects of gardening with pesticides, like how harmful pesticides are for your water/food, the dangers towards humans lives and wildlife, and a lot more! I think it would be a great addition to include on your page, if you wanted to add it! I really hope I can teach people how bad this stuff really is and help keep the wildlife alive!!
