Child Health Concern

It is now officially Spring, which has caused me to feel strongly about bringing up a topic of concern I have for children’s safety in our community, when all the chemical lawn care companies start spraying. When my family and I first moved to Barneveld I was pregnant with our second child, we were excited to live in a neighborhood with so many children for our little ones to play with. The last month of my pregnancy I decided to stay home, that is when I noticed the regular frequency of lawn care companies spraying. Even being from a larger city, I never remember seeing spraying at so many houses and at such a high frequency. After this I decided to start researching my concerns. Not wanting to believe a lot of what I was reading I decided to call TruGreen and ask them some questions, especially how much I should be avoiding the areas after they spray considering my “condition.” The gentleman I talked to was nice and informed me that I should have all windows closed when they spray, even the neighbor’s yards, and not to go outside for at least three hours afterward. Not long after this, I saw one lawn care company spraying around the same time children were coming home from school. If anything I hope bringing up this topic will bring about awareness, so that parents can make educated decisions about there lawn care. I found the report below, even if only true in part, very interesting and to be a pretty good compilation of all I have read concerning this issue.
The following report on lawn pesticides was written by Nathan Diegelman of the S.T.A.T.E Foundation.
