   Well, he's right about the spraying helicopters for sure -- they should be
banned, they're poisoning the whole community. Aerial sprays drift for miles and
miles, and it's pretty nasty stuff. Insecticides are essentially nerve poisons,
but the whole concept is totally flawed. Nature has plenty of predators to kill
the bugs that eat the crops, but the sprays kill the good bugs right along with
the bad, just insuring that they'll need to spray again and again. Chemically
dependant farmers are just that -- junkies, and the pusher is the ag-agents and
the chemical companies. We have crop eating bugs in our greenhouse too, but we
just bring in some predators and let them eat the whitefiles, mealybugs, aphids
and other pests.
   The best way to deal with spraying helicopters is to sue them and the farmer,
it's pretty trivial to prove that the spray comes on to adjoining land, and they
don't have a legal right to spray anything, even water, if it comes on to the
neighbor's land, there's been plenty of court cases already affirming that.
