Good Morning Northern Gold Coasters!
Look into the sky – see that helicopter? It is currently spraying a spray called BTI into YOUR environment in an attempt to prevent mossie larvae forming after all the recent rain.
Are we supposed to be grateful for this?
Did you know that if you are living on the Northern Gold Coast right now, yes right now, you are breathing this spray?
Are you really OK with this?
Who are the council fooling saying that spray is not floating into our environment this morning with the current breeze and occasional showers?
The reason they are spraying this morning is because there is a king tide due. This, to put a long story short, can cause a mountain of mossies.
And as people phone the council and moan, moan, moan about the mossies, the council are only responding to public pressure.
Do you remember signing a consent form to allow yourself to be sprayed? Hmmm, me neither.
Did you know that BTI kills bees?
Did you know that BTI is a researched carcinogenic?
Oh, What is a carcinogenic?
A carcinogen is any substance that is an agent directly involved in causing cancer. This may be due to the ability to damage the genome or to the disruption of cellular metabolic processes.
If you are happy with being sprayed with a carcinogenic, then please don’t read any further. After all, it’s freedom of choice here at this blog, and that’s your call.
If you feel like this sort of situation doesn’t work for you, that you are entitled to know what yourself, your family and your pets are consuming – then please make a call to the Gold Coast City Council and tell them this. Tell them you are unhappy. Tell them you want to know more.
Tell them that you value your health.
