Spray Drift Education Network – Has Your Garden Been Affected By a Neighbor’s Use of Pesticides?

Evanston, IL–(ENEWSPF)–May 16, 2011.  Spray Drift Education Network is a new grassroots organization whose mission is to educate people about the issue of chemical and pesticide drift and help them respond appropriately when chemical drift occurs. 

The website (spraydriftillinois.com) has complete information on how to file a claim, an important first step in bringing this problem to the Department of Agriculture’s attention.

Though most people might think pesticide drift is primarily a problem in rural Illinois, half of the current complaints regarding the misuse of pesticides (primarily lawn care pesticides) are generated in urban areas according to the Illinois Department of Agriculture. So, for all of you citizens out there, report, report, report and we can get some better laws into place to protect us from involuntary pesticide exposure.
