Recently, I’ve been fogging for mosquitoes using Resmethrin, a synthetic form of Pyrethrum, an insecticide made from small white Chrysanthemum like flowers grown in the highlands of Kenya.

I checked the MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheet)for Resmethrin and it makes the stuff sound like a cocktail of Sarin, plutonium and Kryptonite.

Then I looked at older articles and found this 1996 statement, “Resmethrin is a slightly toxic to practically non-toxic compound in EPA toxicity class III.”

It appears that the activists & regulatory agencies are putting more & more things into the “Oh no, we’re all gonna die” and the “must have 6 professional licenses and a $1 million bond to purchase” category.

DDT is safe: just ask the professor who ate it for 40 years
