I think you will find that their populations increased after the bounties were dropped and they were protected from capture and hunting.

>>It is a well established fact that DDT destroyed the egg shells of a wide range of birds including the bald eagle, our nation’s symbol of freedom. <<

No it isn’t. Read the links here

>>If I have to swat a few bugs in order for my kids to be able to see an eagle soaring across the sky, so be it. <<

Yeah, tell that to the mother holding her DEAD child that could have been prevented by the use of DDT.

What an unbelievably selfish statement you just made. It’s all about your kids, isn’t it?

That pelican s eggs being hurt vy DDT was a bunch of BS perpetrated by Eddie Albert of the Center for Democratic Stucis at Santa Barbars.

Both he and the orgiznation are/were communist.

When I was a little boy, the "bug truck" drove through our neighborhood every night during the summer, spraying DDT-- and we, being children and using childish logic ( "bad for bugs, must be good for us!" ) always ran out and played in the plume of spray...

I still remember pictures of people infested with lice and fleas and ticks being doused with DDT powder, in third-world countries.

I wonder if the spray is the cause of the immune system disorders of myself and 5 siblings

I'm inclined to believe the glut of antibiotic and steroid consumption in our times has been the largest contributor to current immune system problems we're seeing in adults over 30... JMHO....
